I arrived at KWGN Channel 5 at six this morning, made up and ready to talk books. It’s always fun to visit a news room–I get a particular kick out of the weather person standing in front of a blank blue or green screen, showing where the high-pressure areas are, and so forth. It took me a long time to realize that the commentator can see the temperatures, etc., on the monitor. 🙂 Duh.
I chatted with Ann Lauricello, who has interviewed me before. She’s a gracious professional and makes the whole experience very easy.
After the interview, my friend Debbie Korrell and I stopped off at the Village Inn for breakfast. I’ll be shooting the breeze with Dave Chaffen on KGAB AM 650 at 9:07–how’s that for precise? Once that’s done, I’ll be working on “Tate” and taking the occasional shopping break. 🙂
Cheyenne is calming down, since Frontier Days officially ended yesterday. One of the promoters told me they have two weeks off before they start planning for 2010, and I don’t doubt it. It’s mind-boggling to think of all the work that goes into this famous rodeo.
It’s a good one, folks. If you’ve never been to Cheyenne Frontier Days, you ought to give it a try.
