12 October 28th, 2015 Days of our Lives: Greg Meng, Deidre Hall & Kristian Alfonso Ring The Opening Bell At NYSE!


Wednesday morning got off to a very Salem-esque start at the New York Stock Exchange in New York City!

Celebrating 50 years on the air, and touting their new book on sale now, Days of our Lives 50 Years, the series co-executive producer (author) Greg Meng, and longtime series stars, Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Kristian Alfonso (Hope) rang the bell to open stock trading for the day, which has become quite the tradition and honor.

Days of our Lives continues its book tour stops this week featuring many of the cast who will be present at signings and visiting: Dallas, Kansas City, Atlanta, and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Watch Meng ring the opening bell flanked by Deidre and Kristian after the jump! Then let us know, are you ready for anniversary week on DAYS which starts on-air the week of Monday November 9th? Comment below!

    The celebration already started a few weeks ago as Days writing improved and now with ratings up there is more reason to celebrate…just hope it continues into the next year and with news Days is renewed!


  2. Blake says:

    Very cool, I know they loved doing that. And right when it was announced that Days made it at #3 in the ratings.

    Kristian Alfonso always looks better in public like this event and the Emmys than she does on the show. Of course Deidre Hall looks great also!


  3. Jeremy says:

    How DAYSILIOUS!!! Deidre and Kristian look so happy, great they are representing DAYS OF OUR LIVES.

    I just ordered the 50th Anniversary book by Greg Meng and it’s coming tomorrow! I can’t wait, so does anyone know if there is the DAYS fan event on November 14th in California at Universal City walk?
    I haven’t heard that much about it, except a month ago on Twitter.

    So excited for November, DAYS IS FIFTY 5-0!!!!!!

    So cool! A well-deserved honor for this iconic show’s milestone. It’s been wonderful to see all the promotion surrounding the 50th Anniversary . Caught a segment on Today with Kathie Lee and Honda featuring several of the stars. Lots of fun. Seems to be paying off as evidenced by the ratings boost. Really wish all that soaps promoted their shows appropriately all the time. If they received half the PR of primetime shows they would attract new viewers and lapsed viewers I’m sure.

    Wish they had expanded the book tour.


    MBmomof3 replied

    “Honda” = Hoda. Darn autocorrect.


    4ever DAYS replied

    It’s a good thing you corrected that because Kathie Lee is the one with the motor mouth. LOL!
