Handle with care... lots and lots of care...
This was my May Sweeps story and it was a complete pleasure to do. Dave Foulk is a legendary news man who has worked for a number of outlets in the Southeast, including WBIR. But, that is not why you should know him. He is just a great man with a bright personality. He let me and the station into his house last week to learn about his personal battle with colon cancer. He was very forthcoming. He wanted do anything, he said, to stop others from getting that illness. Here’s the piece above.
I haven’t posted on here in more than a month. That’s awful. Just plain awful. But, I think I have a good excuse. The last month has been crazy. Downright busy would be an understatement. I left Tennessee one whole week to explore Texas for a journalism workshop. It was absolutely beautiful, but I worked around the clock. I then came back to the right UT (Texas has the bad UT) and got hit head on by Sweeps. Talk to any television guy or gal in person and you’ll quickly find out how tired they are after this uber-competitive time of the year.
Safe to say, I’m worn out. Dead tired. But, that doesn’t mean I will stop blogging. Nope, it’s definitely time to start that up again. So, here it goes.
Whoa, I’ve been off of here for some time. Anyway, as most Knoxvillians know, Yee-Haw Industries downtown on Gay Street announced it will soon close. It’s existed for 15 years, both in Knoxville and Corbin, KY, and its impact has been profound. Here’s the story I did yesterday on what Yee-Haw means to K-Town. It’s a pretty unique place. Not many places like it. Do you have any Yee-Haw stuff?
