As of right now I’ll be live on FoxNews Business Channel’s “Money Rocks” today at 3pm CT. We’re talking the Illinois pension mess.
Of course, you know how TV is. I may get down there and get all ready and they may bump my segment. So, we can only cross our fingers and hope it all goes according to plan.
Well, I just got back from the studio and the Show went well. Live video to New York for about three minutes duration.
I have to say that TV always makes me laugh.
Here is how it goes: I get contacted anywhere from 9AM to 11AM. I call back. They tell me what the show is and the topic and maybe ask for a few facts to be emailed back to them. They send a limo. I get in for the 1 hour trip to Chicago. I get makeup and wait for my spot. I get on the air for two to five minutes. I get back in the limo for another hour or so trip back home.
Yep, all that for about two to five minutes of live video. All that expense for two to five minutes.
What a racket, eh?
But I always enjoy it, anyway.
