I'm gonna be on the news...

...in like 45 minutes.

When I got up today and went to work, I had no idea that I was going to be the sole representative of my company expected to interview for the 10 o'clock nightly news.

As a part of Craft Beer Week, the local news station went around to various breweries to interview people. We were not informed that this was happening until about 15 minutes before they showed up. As the manager on duty today, I tried very hard to delegate this job to somebody else, but I failed.

I hope I didn't make an ass of myself. My boss might not like it.

Yeah, what good is telling us about it when you don't mention the town or station?

Don't be afraid of making an ass of yourself! In fact, I say make a point of it. If your interview hasn't been auto-tuned by tomorrow morning, you're doing something wrong.

I thought of that. I had this awesome opportunity to become a youtube sensation, and I blew it!

I was once interviewed for a news story. It didn't air until months later.

But they told me it was supposed to air last night. It's got to air some time this week, otherwise it kind of defeats the purpose.

Ugh...I found it. Apparently it was the very first story last night, and I turned my TV on a few minutes too late.

I forgot how much I hate my voice.

You did well, and came off better than some of the customers. We never sound like we think we do on a playback. If it helps, I've been deaf in one ear for two months, so couldn't hear it very well.

And props to the camera operator, some nice angles assuming they weren't stock footage.

I know, but it's been years since I've had to listen to myself. I forgot what I sound like to the rest of the world.

Yep, he did a good job. All filmed yesterday.
