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.
