Media Coverage and Links

Media Coverage

The first media focus on Franklin came in 1992 when several newspapers and TV stations did stories about his groundbreaking discovery. Many articles and reports have since documented Franklin's progress through pioneering truffle cultivation. In 2000, Franklin, along with Chewy (the truffle hunting dog), appeared on The Tonight Show with David Letterman, and in 2007 Franklin appeared on Martha Stewart Living.
