My unfolding story has had a number of positive effects. I’ve heard from a lot of people with whom I’d lost touch. Thank you for coming out of the woodwork.
Today I heard from someone I first met one summer over 20 years ago. Back then ABC used the Channel 8 studios to produce a series of experimental pilots. My friend was the network’s rep in our building.
It’s was pretty cool to see these shows go in and out of production over the course of a week. People you know today, but mainly unknown then, came to New Haven. We had Joy Behar, Rush Limbaugh, Curtis Sliwa, Bobby Rivers, Richard Belzer and a gaggle of others as hosts, producers and guests.
Anyway, my friend now works on the Nate Berkus Show. I have it on the TV right now. Nate is an Oprah discovery.
Oprah’s got the eye. Nate is comfortably charming on the tube.
I wrote my friend wondering if the show would ever need a computer expert to help non-sophisticated users? I don’t know.
It seems like something I could do. I know computers. I do TV. Right now I have some time on my hands. It could be fun.
Maybe someone wants to be my Oprah?
