We were featured on Fox 2 News here in Detroit on Saturday morning, and it was a very cool experience. It was an honor to be included and thanks to Charlie Langton and Fox 2 for having us.
I will say, I was a bit nervous prior to the event, however once we were on the set, it felt somewhat natural. Charlie is a professional and welcomed us with his usual zeal. The rest as they say is history. We had fun, although we were discussing a very serious situation. I have to say, there is a lot that goes into producing the news. The content, the timing, the organization, it is endless. It made me appreciate what goes on behind the scenes to get the finished product.
It was nice to have our organization, Walk For The Beat, highlighted, and great to have Dr. Kazziha from Cardiovascular Consultants, and Brittani Staley from the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority join me on the set. Of course, I always feel better when the good doctor is nearby.
It was a great experience, although it was only a few minutes in length. Perhaps in the near future, we will be highlighted in a segment that provides more insight into our organization, what we do, and our plans for our walk across America.
