The Morning Blend

I recently had an interview on a local morning TV show. It was an adventure all by itself. Getting a behind the scenes look at a live TV show. I have a new appreciation for the hosts and producers who were busy bees behind the scenes. Also, I appreciated that during the commercial breaks, Allison and Molly took a few moments before to warm me up, and a few moments after to thank me.

For the record, I had no idea what they were going to ask me, so I was a bit surprised the interview became so philosophical. Also, not sure why the heck I was filmed sideways…

I also met Adam Ciralsky, the NBC News producer with the new show The Wanted and who also worked on 60 Minutes and the Today Show. I gave him my “elevator speech” and he said my book was interesting enough that he’s going to hand-deliver it to the Today Show in New York City this week. That could be my lucky break.
