I got an urgent call from Jody, the CEO of askpatty.com, where I’m a contributing editor. San Diego’s channel 10 news had called her, asking if she had someone who could go on the news to talk about upcoming hands free cell phone laws going into effect in California on July 1.
So they asked me. To be on the evening news. As a car expert.
Of course I said yes, because who would want to pass up an opportunity like that? That doesn’t make me any less nervous that I’ll make an ass of myself.
This is on top of an already crazy morning where I interviewed car designer/ guru Chip Foose, also for askpatty. I am such a huge fan of his – I was so excited to get to talk to him. What a nice guy! In addition, Larry Andreini, CEO of Ridemakerz, was on the phone. I’ll be writing that up soon.
If these don’t all point to what I should be doing, I don’t know what does. And that’s a good feeling, in spite of being scared to be in front of the camera.
ETA: The piece aired at 5:30 pm on Friday, June 27. I’ll post a link as soon as it’s up on their web site.
