I knew something was different about today when I woke up with an e-mail from a CBS radio affiliate in Dallas.
Apparently the NH Sunday News story of Jan. 3 had been picked up by the Associated Press, and that led to a hectic and tiring and most excellent day of promoting HFH. In addition to Dallas, local radio was interested, as were stations from California, Oregon, South Carolina, and Westwood One. The most exciting call of the day came from Fox, which wanted to do a live TV interview for a segment of their 11-1 network program, “Happening Now.” So I was carted to a studio at the NH Institute of Politics on the campus of Saint Anselm College, where host Jane Skinner had me on, remotely, for about a five-minute segment. I felt a little clumsy and goofy, but the end product seemed to be pretty cool (lots of cutaways from my big head). Amazing what a high end production team can do!
And not 10 minutes into the ride back from the studio, there were 13 new online donations … can’t wait to see what the mailman brings later this week.
Additionally, we did a little bit of live radio, a couple other taped segments, and scheduled a few more over the course of the next week or so. It was truly a great day for the cause.
And then, to cap things off, Dad and Uncle Ray split up the rebounding chores for 1,370 more in the bucket, for a total of 79,007 down, 920,993 to go to 1 million made foul shots.
