Here’s the video of our appearance on KMSP FOX 9 on Friday night. Jack, Peter, and Marni did a great job, and my tie doesn’t look too crooked.
Jack, Peter, and I were on the KMSP FOX9 news tonight at 5:00 PM to talk a little bit about Dad’s Eye View, and it was a lot of fun!
We got to sit on the comfy couch on the Buzz set (the boys were only willing to do the interview if they were guaranteed comfy seats; I’m glad they came through) while the news was going on. It was very cool to watch the broadcast being put together, with the cameras moving around like Daleks on the floor and monitors showing all the different video feeds that go into making a news show. My own TV career ended in the 1980s when I worked at my college station–our equipment was of the vintage on display at the Pavek Museum–so it was neat to see what has changed and what has stayed the same.
The crew at KMSP made us feel very welcome. Lori Fisher, the producer, helped us settle in on stage and made us comfortable, and the floor crew answered all of our questions. Marni Hughes did the interview, and she was great! The boys had a good time coming up with their favorite spots from the book–Jack chose French Regional Park for its great rope playground, and Peter picked The Big Back Yard at the Science Museum.
I don’t honestly know what I said; I tend to have a touch of interview amnesia. But I know that I talked about the iPhone app, which is a very cool way to learn about your adventures on the go.
Tomorrow I’ll be on WCCO radio at 2:00 PM, so set your dial!
