Ever been on TV news?

Just wondering...

I took my roomies dog for a walk this afternoon - and walked by the Governor's Mansion. With the State budget getting tight, Governor Jesse Ventura is moving to his own house, and more or less abandoning (sp?) the manison. With media-types everywhere, I was asked -kinda "guy on the street with an opinion" - to be interviewed. Video at 10 p.m.

Nope...closest probably was when I was little, a local news show used to feature drawings sent in by kids that were weather-related and put one on the screen during the weather segment. Then they would say your name, age or grade in school, and where you were from. My sister and I each had a picture featured.

Chuck?! LOL

Oh man, I so wish I had a satellite hookup so I could see this. hehe

As for myself, I've never been on tv. Thank god, cause of that whole "camera adds ten pounds" thing!

I think the weather guy was like George Graphos or something...back home, we got our "local" news through Green Bay, even though it's an hour away and not even in our state! *lol*

We weren't a hick town though, I swear!!!!!

Once, a few years back walking out of Fenway Park on opening day. The anchorperson or whatever heard my comment about Carl Everett and asked me a few questions....

nope- but I used to work behind the scenes in the control room as a Director's assistant doing on-air graphics and other stuff at our local TV station-all they did each day was three news bulletins- saw some funny stuff behind the scenes and in the commercial breaks

Well, I was in Itaewon district of Seoul, Korea, walking around with a co-worker and basically bar-hopping in the middle of the afternoon when these two guys and a big camera approached us. The wondered if they could ask us a few questions, so we agreed.

The question was "what three things come to your mind when we say Canada" and we both replied on camera. I forgot my buddies exactly, but I think he said "hockey, Canadian mounties, and ?". Mine were "Beautiful Canadian Women, hockey, and more beautiful Canadian women "!

No lie, at least thats how i remember it. Anyway, I have always wondered what those two Canadian guys used that for. I wonder if I was a big star in Canada for a while

Seriously, that was back in 97 though

I've appeared in local television news programs on several occasions. They've all been of me dancing either with my ethnic Greek dance troup or in dance numbers from plays that I've been in. I don't like doing it though because every news broadcaster I've encountered has been full of themselves. But whatever. It was fun.

I'm always on TV for some reason or another...I guess I should stop robbing banks.

Actually, I donated time to PBS stations and was on TV for charity drives (didn't tape myself though - didn't have a VCR back then) and I was on TV for some bizarre channel 32 thing back in Chicago in the early 80's (not even sure why I was there). Lastly, in the 90's, I was on the TV news for a "man on the street" comment about David Letterman changing networks.

I looked better on TV in the 80's. Somehow the camera added an extra 20 pounds in the 90's. It couldn't have been all that pizza I ate...
