My TV Interview is DONE! (Tour de Cure promo feature)

I was interviewed by Fox news, the local affiliate, Fox 59 in Indianapolis today. It should air in a day or so, I'll have the air date for those of you in the viewing area.

I'll also post a link if it makes their website. It's the Health point feature. On a side note......

It's quite cool riding down the road with a news crew chasing you and then getting motorpace shots from the front. I attracted quite an audience in the West Lafayette neighborhood we went through.

I should also get a disc of it, either data or DVD. If so, after the air date, I'll put it up on You Tube. It may also be available through WXIN 59's website. If so, I'll post a link!

I'll either do that or post the video link to Fox's website if it goes up there.

Tour de Cure, it's a promo spot feature for the American Diabetes Association. I'm a Team Captain for the Indianapolis event.

Very nice, Tom. I guess I'll have to listen to the interview, if only to hear your thick Midwestern accent. :-) Seriously, congratulations. I can't think of a better bike and lifestyle change advocate for an interview.
