Choice Hotels "undercover" boss air tonight

The hit CBS show Undercover Boss is proving to be a great boon to the travel industry as it is helping millions of viewers better understand the tremendous work that goes on behind the scenes to create a quality travel experience.

The second season premiere of Undercover Boss will feature Steve Joyce, president and CEO of Choice Hotels International, as he hits the frontlines of his company and receives an exhausting, up-close look at his company while manning the front desk and cleaning rooms at Comfort Suites hotels, directing sales at Cambria Suites, and plunging toilets and working with a maintenance crew at the world's largest Econo Lodge.

The episode which airs tonight at 10 pm ET is the first of several scheduled for this season that will highlight the workings of travel companies. Already announced are upcoming shows featuring the heads of Frontier Airlines and Great Wolf Resorts.
