Would you do me a favor this Saturday?
I try not to ask for much. Okay, maybe that’s not true, but I’m going to ask you a favor, anyway. Mark this down: 7:00 pm, Saturday, October 1.
It’s weird, I know. But I’m asking for three presents in one.
First, my mom and dad celebrate their wedding anniversary this week. (62nd?) Second, my wife and I celebrate our wedding anniversary this week. Third, next week is my birthday.
I’d ask for a birthday party, but I know you’ll all be worn out from the big Forest Park event on Tuesday, October 4 at 5:00 pm.
So I’m going to ask you for a very simple favor.
Please watch KPLR Channel 11 at 7:00 pm this Saturday, October 1. If you can’t watch, DVR it and watch later.
See, I’ll be on. I’m the guest on a brand new news program hosted by Shirley Washington. Panelists include Charles Jaco and Betsey Bruce. (It could be lively!)
The format sounds great: a 15-minute regular news section followed by a 45-minute examination of one topic. So don’t stop watching if it’s straight news at the top of the hour. Pop some popcorn, crack open a Bud Select, and relax.
Thanks to your work, the topic of the very first episode is the Tea Party Movement.
Since we couldn’t get all 7,000+ people registered in our database into the studio, they asked me to be your humble representative. I hope I don’t let you down.
So please watch or DVR Saturday at 7, Channel 11. And drop a nice note to Shirley Washington to thank her for making Tea Party the first topic.
