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:
We drove around for a little while testing out the product, which was The GripGo universal car phone mount.
Leslie sent me these pictures that the camera man took after we got back from testing the product out.
Want to know if it works? Well, you have to watch my segment to find out! You can watch it here.
It was such a fun day and Leslie tests out these types of products every week, so if you’re interested, be sure to watch NECN on Wednesday nights in the 9 o’clock hour.
