This morning I had the pleasure of being on CBC’s Daybreak North out of Prince George. I had connected with one of the hosts, Will Fundal, on Twitter about a month earlier. Then through a series of emails and Twitter messages he thought I should come on the show. Our topic was Social Media, specifically Twitter, in the Peace Region but more so in Fort St John. Have a listen:
This is not my first time on the Radio. I remember being on CBC North talking about the iPhone when it first came to Yellowknife, or CJCD during Folk on the Rocks. I don’t get nervous per say, but unsure about whether or not I’m going to screw something up. Radio and Podcasting are very different, with Podcasting it all seems so easy going that if I mess up no matter, but with radio I often feat I stumble.
The one thing I don’t do is re-listen to recording afterward. I don’t want to know how I sound or what I actually said. I know there was lots that I missed and wanted to cover but there is only so much time. When I look back though, we have come a long way here in Fort St John, and the only way is up. Eventually I get around to talking more about how with Facebook and Twitter, Prince George, Dawson Creek, Grande Prairie and Fort St John will seem more connected. Or how businesses can jump in and be the talk of the town.
All this will come. Let me know what your thoughts are on Twitter, Facebook, Fort St John or the interview.
