My First, and Unfortunately Not My Last, TV Interview

I had my first TV interview yesterday - it was a fantastic experience - until I saw myself on TV!!  The people at ABC were so nice and helpful and made me feel very comfortable - as comfortable as I could be doing a LIVE TV interview!!  Here's a link in case you want to watch - it wasn't perfect but it was better than I expected - I didn't faint or have a major brain freeze! 

The wonderful marketers for Cheerios put me and my two sisters up in a beautiful hotel right across the street from the studio - which we appreciated at 6:00 in the morning! 

At the studio, we waited in the "Green Room" 

My sister, Mindy, wrote, "The Grusin sisters were here" on the wall!
I was "miked" by Mike - really!

I was interviewed by Kevin Roy,
who did a wonderful job of
covering for my flubs!!


The "news room" is a lot smaller than I thought it would be.  There was a small platform off to the side where Kevin and I sat for my interview.  I don't have a picture of us together because I made my sisters leave right before Kevin sat down.  I was afraid I'd look at them and start laughing so they watched in the green room! 

Here's a view of the set from the sidewalk in front of the building.  The whole thing was very cool!!

  9. Thanks, Sally, though I think "great" is a little strong - I was thinking more "not too embarrassing"!

  10. You are getting such fabulous press for your book! That is amazing! Congrats to you, Lori!! You kept your cool well during the interview.I would have been stammering and so nervous!
