The Power Of Periscope
So there I am, minding my own business, LIVESTREAMING on Periscope from the scene of a major accident in Tribeca, New York. I was busy sharing with my Periscope audience, all about the crane disaster that killed a man just a few blocks from my apartment.
SkyNews Calling From England!
The next thing I know, I get a TWEET from @SkyNews in London asking if I would be able to help them with the story, by going LIVE from the scene of the accident site to give commentary on the incident.
I think we all know the answer.
Please note this would be my FIRST time as a REAL REPORTER, and I faked my way through the whole thing. I was pretty damned good at it if I must say.
And. I Must.
In case you are unaware of this teeny small fact, I’ve been creating video content for my blog and YouTube channel, while believing in my head that I could actually be a real reporter some day.
I’ve been on Red Carpets, Conferences, Awards Shows, pretty much “I’m All Over The Place” and all the while hoping someone would see me and I would get a lucky break. This is NOT news to anyone who knows me.
Yes, I know I’m not young anymore, but I’m not going to let anything stop me….except for death. I’ll just keep on trying.
Dreams Do Come True.
Now if I could only make a living doing this……Hey AARP.…I’m available![embedplusvideo height=”390″ width=”640″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1QefYTW” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/f-rYWbotCkw?fs=1&vq=hd720″ vars=”ytid=f-rYWbotCkw&width=640&height=390&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep5104″ /]
Thanks to SkyNews for trusting me with this awesome assignment. Would you want to do this?? Would you have the balls to go live on GLOBAL TELEVISION??
