Great news bug!!
Great news bug!!
The best news ever, bug! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
I'm one of the finalists for Time Warner in Wisconsin in a contest to be the 'fan' guest host on their Roundtable sports talk show.
So anyone here from WI, please vote for me. lol. Starting 8/1, all of the finalists will have their videos on the Wisconsin on Demand channel 411.
My real name is Dan from Oshkosh, WI.
For the show, we shot a spot with the producer, then a 15 minute q/a with Dennis Krause, the host, then a follow-up with the producer.
I thought I did ok, he hit me with all sorts of questions. A lot of obvious ones about the Brewers, Packers, Badger football and basketball, Marquette basketball, sports talk radio shows, fantasy sports, but unexpectedly hit me with Nascar, and UWGB basketball.
I think I did ok, and I also think I will do ok in the voting. I'm a daily caller on 3 sports talk radio shows, so I am promoting myself there, and the hosts are talking me up also. The one host said if I win the contest, he would have a listener party at a bar for when my show airs.
I'm also going to put up some flyers at bars, clubs, etc., facebook event invite it, and I tweet with a number of the regular panelists that are WI sports reporters, hosts, journalists, etc.
So, I guess I am now being on reality tv myself, although it is only shown on Time Warner channel 32 throughout WI.
I might possibly have a teaching job! I have to do it through at internship program until my credentials and masters are complete, as it will a different credential than I currently have. I'll know more tommorrow, but it is the best teaching news I had since budget cuts.
Whenever you see darkness, there is extraordinary opportunity for the light to burn brighter.
Good luck JLuvs!!! I know it's been a long, hard battle for you. Please let us know how it goes!
Count your blessings!
Happy for you, JLuvs! That's great news.
