My Carolina Today is a new show on NBC-17 focusing on Central Carolina. So, why am I telling you about this? Well, if you’re in the area, this an interesting show to keep up on local events, trends and information.
What if you’re not local?
Oh heck, whether you’re local or not, I wanted to share this information with you because I was a guest on the show! I was involved in 2 segments. The first segment was about a new social media platform called Togetherville™. Sharon Delaney called and asked me if I would research the platform and come and give my opinion on the air.
Here’s the segment:
Yes, so my name is pronounced and spelled wrong, but it was still a pleasure to be on the show. The next segment is for their Tech Tuesday in which we talked about some tech etiquette as well as some new gadgets on the market.
Here’s the Tech Tuesday segment:
BIG Lessons Learned:
- Know where the camera is and every once in a while, LOOK at it with a smile. I focused so much attention on Sharon and talking with her, that I blocked the audience out and didn’t connect as well as I could have. (It’s not like I’m camera shy – have you seen my videos on YouTube?)
- Don’t wear pink on camera! Honestly, I know that TV adds 10 pounds, but 25? LOL! Live and learn! Overall, it was awesome and I look forward to my next appearance – I promise, I will look at the camera and pink will not be anywhere on my body.
Making videos for yourself is nothing like being on a set for a television show. Though I have to admit, everyone that I encountered at the studio was friendly, helpful, courteous and did everything they could to help me to feel comfortable.
I highly recommend the show, after all, they have some pretty great guests!
