When I last wrote, earlier today, I was between a television appearance and a radio appearance, parts of my visit to Halifax to talk about the 2017 Old Farmer’s Almanac.
The day has continued to be Almanac-filled: after those interviews, I spoke to a reporter at Cochrane Now on the phone about the upcoming Alberta winter, and then, just now, did a live hit on Regina’s CJME News MainStreet program about Saskatchewan’s.
Here are the results of my day’s work.
Global News Halifax
I started the day on television; you can read more about it here. This is the resulting piece from the Global website:
News 95.7 – The Rick Howe Show
After starting the day on television, I had some time to cool my jets in the Halifax Central Library before heading across town to News 95.7 to appear on The Rick Howe Show.
Rick was great: curious, professional, funny; the kind of radio interviewer that every guest hopes for.
Here’s the audio of our chat from the station’s website:.
This was a last-minute addition to my schedule, a late-afternoon phone call into this Regina afternoon talk show hosted by Jill Slater and Dave Arnold. Ironically, the segment opens with discussion of the Island-wide school evacuation back home that affected Oliver and his peers; but I was in Halifax, and there was winter weather to talk about, so it didn’t come up. I appreciated Dave and Jill’s enthusiasm for the Almanac, and for talking weather.
Here’s the station’s podcast of the segment:
It’s fun to talk about The Old Farmer’s Almanac, and I’m proud to be a small part of this years effort to announce the new edition to the world.
The fun continues tomorrow morning when I’ll appear on CTV Morning Live Atlantic after 7:00 a.m. Then it’s home to the Island to enjoy the weather itself after two days of talking about its predicting.
It's Not on The Cochrane Now Website. :(
and This does not Show the CTV Morning Show Interview/The Cochrane Now Interview. :(
The Cochrane Now interview was for print, not broadcast.
The CTV Morning Live interview just happened an hour ago; I’ll post here here when they post it.
You are a good fact checker, son.
The Cochrane Now story is here.
and I did not hear your CBC interview.
