Last Wednesday, August 5, was a fretful day full of nervous pacing and nail-biting as the appointed time of my first-ever TV interview – 3:30 pm – inched ever closer.
Fortunately, CHEK News reporter/anchor Dan Clovis‘s easygoing approach put me instantly at ease, and the interview went off without any fainting, pants-wetting or even noticeable trembling…just the occasional nervous titter and a tinge of dry-mouth.
The spot aired first on CHEK’s weekly sports show, Game ON!, on Sunday, August 9. It aired again during the August 12 evening newscast with an added accolade – namely, CHEK singled me out as their “Athlete of the Week.” I’m duly honoured.
Huge kudos to Dan and the CHEK team for their excellent work in putting the story together.
Periodically, Dan Clovis does a segment called “Dan’ll Do It” in which he immerses himself in a variety of athletic activities…Zumba, dodgeball, that sort of thing. (Last week, he donned lacrosse goalie gear and endured a merciless pelting by the Victoria Shamrocks.) For a future episode of “Dan’ll Do It,” I’ve invited Dan to join me in creating a GPS doodle…and he has graciously accepted.
