Because I have a small obsession with watching the news, mostly for the weather reports, I watch New England Cable News (NECN) often. It’s local (New England) and it’s 24 hour news station, so I can get my weather reports pretty much anytime I want. The weather around here changes from day to day – literally – so we really don’t know how to dress unless we check with the weather people. True story.
About three weeks ago, I got an email with “media request from New England Cable News” in the subject line. I happened to be sitting on my laptop at the time the email came in and honest to god, I couldn’t have opened it any faster.
The email asked me if I would be interested in helping Leslie Gaydos, NECN anchor/reporter with one of her Does it Work segments. I was told that they were searching for a multi-tasking mom to test out a device that is supposed to hold your smart phone while you drive.
Um, let me think about that for a second…..
I emailed them back telling them that I was very interested & we worked out a date for them to come to my house to film a short interview & then take the product out with us in the car to see how it worked.
Chris was home that day and here are a few of the pictures he snapped of the interview they did in my kitchen:
