I spent an hour and a half in production with the crew at Rogers TV in Ottawa today (Cable 22) doing a practice run for the new show I’ll be hosting. Mark Arbique from Fortey Arbique and Cathy Macdonald (Ottawamortgagebrokers.com) joined me as did Micheline Masson, a home stager. What fun!
I have to go out and fix my makeup and try to remember how to close out the show a little better but on the whole, it went pretty smoothly! Interesting, trying to stickhandle callers, listening to the producer (there’s a running commentary going on in my ear as host as to how many seconds are remaining to break, or if we have a caller) and keep our conversation moving along.
Huge thanks to Sarah Grant for coaching all of us in how to do this properly (Sarah is terrific), Sean for handling the camera and getting our mikes and my earphone sorted out, and Ali for doing the floor production. I learned a ton!
