It’s been fun talking about the book on TV the last few days. NBC 7 San Diego aired a story last night at 11pm (Monday) and it’s also online.
Yesterday I did KPBS local NPR radio and public TV.
This morning it was CW Channel 6 on their show San Diego Living (no link yet; stay tuned).
TV studios are always so interesting — usually an oasis of nice-looking chairs and tables (on camera) surrounded by concrete floors, huge cameras, and lots of black cables (off camera, of course). This morning on Ch. 6 I saw the weather guy talking outside in front of some palm trees on the monitor — I assumed he was offsite at the beach or something. Then two minutes later he walks inside and takes off his mike! So he was either in the back lot or in front of some fake background.
My favorite of all time is the studio in downtown where they do satellite TV. It’s in a basement, and they put a flat screen TV behind you that has a tape of the San Diego skyline with traffic on the freeways. It’s on an endless loop, and the guy who runs the studio told me once that you can see the same big truck pass by every 10 minutes. Awesome.
