(Hey Mike Skillrud, Gary Weckwerth and I say How-Doo!)
It has been awhile, but today I dusted off the ol’ media skills and appeared on the new “KELOLAND LIving” television program representing my employer Face It TOGETHER and talking about the many paths we offer to help those in addiction get well again. In case you’re unsure, I’m the man in black on the left, with co-host Brittany Kaye on the right.
Hadn’t thought about it until right now but this was my first time on KELO-TV, once home to SD broadcast legends Leo Hartig, Jim Burt, Doug Lund, Ken Hirsch, Joe Cooper, the talented and fetching Bobbi Lower, Jim Wooster with the midday farm markets, and of course, the Captain 11ist of them all, “Weatherman” Dave Dedrick, (“After this message from Old Home Bread. we’ll talk about it….”} Back in the day, local TV didn’t have actual meteorologists bearing the official “Seal”. They had “Weathermen” like Ken Hirsch and Dave D. All you really needed to have was a major-league voice, some personality, and better -than-average skills with the giant, black, erasable magic marker.
