Talk about terrifying! This morning, as part of being a blogger for Chevy Queen of the Road, I was interviewed on FOX 25 morning news. The topic? Local wineries, places I have visited many times and love to promote, yet still I thought I would pass out from nerves! The people at FOX 25 could not have been nicer, and they did a good job of calming my nerves. Still, when I sat in the chair, I felt a little flustered, and my throat felt like it was going to close up. It turned out to be pretty easy, and if I had the chance to do it again, I would jump at it, now that I know what it felt like!
I actually can’t watch the clip myself without cringing, but I thought it might be fun to share!
My only advice from the experience? It is not a good idea to dramatically darken your hair a week before going under TV lights. I do not even look like myself here.
That said, I really did enjoy sharing some of my favorite New England day trips to great wineries like Westport Rivers and Travessia, along with the Coastal Wine Trail with a wider audience. We’re all about eating local food, drinking great local wine is a natural next step!
Does public speaking/the thought of being on live TV make you nervous?
