    A long time ago in 1st grade. The news people were doing something on kids wearing obscene things in school. I was asked to "talk into the camera" about my Grave Digger monster truck shirt :yay:

    I get on the local news occasionally due to my business connections with local government, not all that exciting really. I'll have the Mayor, Police Chief, Sheriff and District Attorney here next month for a media event to kick off an anti-crime program that my company is partnering on with the city. Local TV news will be covering that, maybe I can post up a link.

    i was on a greyhound bus and there was a bomb threat about 4 years ago... we pulled over and fbi, police, dogs...etc cleared a whole block in pottstown, PA to search this bus. as i was getting back on the bus a news reporter asked if i was scared during the ordeal...

    my 5 secs of fame and the clip they used for the report on the news was me saying "well i knew i didn't have a bomb so i wasn't too worried about it"

    i wish i could have seen the newscast so i could see how they introduced that gem :rolleyes:

    I caught a 9 foot python in my neighbors back yard when I was in the 7th grade . They put me on the local news for that.

    I was in Downtown Orlando for work the day after 9/11 and the local CBS reporter was doing the "Let's get the Man on the streets reaction." I didn't get to see it but my friends did. I think I said something in the tune of,"It's going to get alot worse." Something positive like that.
