Two weeks ago while over on Vancouver Island I was lucky enough to get a call from the good folks at CH TV, who were interested in doing an interview about our trip.
I quickly made/changed plans to get over the TV studio as quickly as possible. I didn’t want to miss this opportunity ! After arriving at the front door and buzzing in to say I was there, I was escorted directly to a spot in front of the camera.
A couple questions later and we were done. I was expecting to sit down and discuss the finer details of our trip at length, but we managed to get out the required info before they were off to the next story.
I invited the crew down to our show at Steamers Pub in Victoria that evening for the Sitka / Mother Ocean Surf School event where I would be doing a presentation to the crowd. They arrived promptly at the start of the show, got the required footage and they were off to edit the piece and get it on the news two hours later… incredible.
No messing about with folks in the news industry, trust me… They work hard to get us all the news as quickly as possible. I was amazed at how efficiently they worked on getting the required details, a bit of footage and then, poof, they are gone as quickly as they arrive to get the story on air.
Take a look at the YouTube clip below to see the piece. This aired on Thursday at 11pm and Friday at 5pm.
