So Local Pasco Podcast, January 19th, 2016…They Gonna Put Me On Television Edition

Did you know there was a television studio, in downtown New Port Richey?  I have been working on Main Street the last five years, and I had no idea.  I found out while I was at a Christmas party, just three weeks in to making So Local Pasco podcasts.

The details are in the podcast…But John Gaston and I talked for an hour or so, in December.  I was pretty new at this, and still a little insecure about who we were reaching, and if we were reaching anyone, at all (I had not even discovered how to count subscribers, and thought I only had about FIVE).

He apparently dug what I said.  Also, as any TV producer will tell you, you need to ‘fill the clock’ with programming.

So, I think he figured I’d be a good fit…It’s clear to me he listened to the podcasts, because he wants me to do THAT on TV…He knows what I am trying to do, and is going to support that.  I am excited and terrified…Excited because being on TV gives me a wider audience, and access to some really interesting guests I might not otherwise get, and terrified, because I am responsible for getting, scheduling, and interviewing guests, as well as writing the content.

It’s going to be a wild ride.  Don’t be surprised if I start an additional blog to document the process of making TV.

It’s very late, and I have had a busy day…My mind is going a million miles per hour…Here’s some pics of the TV studio:

Looking toward the television production bay area.  Big, clean, bright space!  I am excited to see how the 'set' looks...We have some pretty cool 'artifacts' to dress it up.

For me, there is NOTHING cooler than a dark blinky television studio space!  I want to play with things!!

This is an early picture, to give a sense of the television studio space.  There are now THREE sets 'built out' in this space.

We are really humbled that TBMM, and especially John Gaston, see the value in what we are doing!

Feel free to leave a comment! Be nice, though, or the banhammer shall fall.
