Separately, Little Giant Ladders announced that Hartl has signed a long term promotional contract with that company.
Hartl's relationship with Little Giant began in late 2003 when she and Dean Johnson (Hartl's co-host of "Hometime") shot an infomercial for Little Giant Ladder Systems, which began airing in early 2004 and rapidly became the top ranked infomercial in the country.
Former "Home Improvement" Tim Allen sidekick Richard Kan (Al Borland) will join Hartl as spokesperson for the brand.
