Another View Point

I think this woman has something to say to those of us who work in PR.  What do you think?

Memory Lane

I interviewed Arnaud de Borchgrave while I worked for WQFM, when he was Newsweek's Chief Foreign Correspondent, after his novel "The Spike" was published.  He was very surprised that I had actually read the book, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  It was a dashing spy novel.  This simple thank you impressed me enough to keep it all these years.  Currently deBorchgrave  is Editor-at-Large of The Washington Times and United Press International, as well as Project Director for Transnational Threats (TNT) and Senior Advisor for The Center for Strategic and International Studies.[4][5]

The other "best" interview I did while doing news and public affairs for WQFM was with Steven King.  He was a hoot and a half and even improvised some Maine Humor with me - Bert & I style.  He did autograph a copy of his novel "Fire Starter" for me.

Waxing Nostalgic

You must forgive the next few posts as I'm tripping down memory lane a bit.  The hubby and I are moving back to the clams of my childhood - specifically Portland Maine.  I'm been trying to clean out filing cabinets etc so we won't be moving a ton of junk. and I've come across some news clippings from the old days in media.

I didn't work at WOKY very long, in fact it was the only media job I was "laid off" from.  Part of the problem was the sexist attitude of the news director - let's just leave it at that, OK?
