Me, on TV

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. Winking smile 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?

    You did it!!! You definitely look nervous but you spoke really well. And like I told you on Sunday, I actually LOVE your new hair color. Love.
    I’m saving this post and will try to visit one or two of these this fall! It definitely sounds like an amazing day trip.
