According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, "Shakespeare’s Pizza is one of four places nationwide that will be featured Saturday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” as part of the show’s 'Best Bites Challenge: College Edition.'”
"Yesterday, Ron Claiborne, the news anchor for the morning show’s weekend edition, dropped by Columbia’s popular downtown pizzeria to visit with the eclectic staff and sample “The Masterpiece,” a pie loaded with eight toppings. A few weeks ago, “Good Morning America” solicited recommendations for America’s favorite college hangouts. The show’s producers whittled a few hundred suggestions down to 25. Ultimately, Claiborne and his producer, Kate Santichen, settled upon four collegiate hot spots to film: Sandwich University in Morgantown, W.Va.; Öl Stuga in Lindsborg, Kan.; Camellia Grill in New Orleans; and Shakespeare’s Pizza in Columbia. All four will be featured on Saturday’s broadcast, and viewers will vote online for the place that sounds the best."
