The picture in last Wednesday’s post was on TV. After I showed the image to a couple folks at work I was told I should sent it in to the local morning weather guy because every morning he shows a picture that a viewer has sent in. I emailed it to him on Friday and he replied that it would get shown on Monday at 5:15 and 6:15AM. When Donna asked if I wanted to get up a little earlier so I could see the picture, I told her no, I’d already seen it.
There are a lot of people at work who get up early and must get their weather in the morning from Matt Monroe because I had a whole lot of people catch me Monday (and a few on Tuesday) and tell me they saw my picture on Channel 6. One person tells me I won a coffee cup with some ground coffee. Another tells me I will probably get an umbrella. I think both of those are promotions from other stations or previous weather people, but never having watched the local morning news, who knows. I vow to watch on Tuesday morning to see what actually happens during the viewer photo segment.
I of course forget all about it. Then last night a friend from the MMC emailed me to say she saw my photo on TV on Monday and I should watch this morning to see one of hers, so I rolled out of bed about 10 minutes earlier than normal and watched the morning weather. Matt did the weather and then went to a commercial. Huh? No picture? When they came back from the break, there was Carol’s photo of some high mountains and blue sky. Oooh and aaah from Weather Guy, cheery comment from Anchor Woman and back to the news. No mention of a coffee mug. No umbrella. Nothing but using up about fifteen seconds of our 15 minutes.
