common taters

The Blogflux MapStats tell me that people do visit my site but it's only posted comments that tell me somebody actually read what I wrote. For example, a guy named Matt recently pointed out an important distinction between the two Chakas that I wondered about last September. This past week, my day was made twice when two TV news anchors left comments on my humble blog.

The first came from WATE's Tearsa Smith in response to another one of my posts about local news. I told Tearsa about my blog on the
Friday before Christmas when she was kind enough to co-host the morning radio show with me. She brought her digital camera, which was great when one of the Harlem Globetrotters made a surprise visit. Hey Tearsa, to quote Casey Kasem, "what happened to the pictures I was supposed to see this week?" I'll post one after she emails them to me.

If you are unsure about the Casey Kasem reference, check out this great animation by Russell Arch, who is coincidentally the husband of the lovely Lisa Kushell, who now goes by Lisa Arch, and once worked with me at the Comedy World Radio Network.

Another TV news anchor left me a comment this week. But this time it was a TV anchor I've never met. In fact, I've never even seen her on TV. Heather Kovar must have found her name in my November 24th post and left a comment that included the kind phrase: "I enjoy your blog!" That's a good thing since her name turned up in yesterday's blog entry too. Naturally I Googled Ms. Kovar to learn more about her. She anchors the morning news on News 12 Connecticut. I found some samples of her on-air work, her personal blog, her work blog and a reference to a Heather Kovar who did some stand-up on May 13th at an industry showcase in New York City. I wonder if it's the same Heather.

Hey Heather, I'm not very familiar with News 12. Is it anything like the channel where Robin Scherbatsky works on "How I Met Your Mother"?

Hey Frank, don't worry. I read your blog daily, but since I've switched to the new blogger, It takes a while for me to log in and leave a comment. I'll start leaving more comments.

Hello Frank in TN! Just a quick note first- My mom and dad sometimes drive from Texas to NYC to visit. He says the prettiest state in the country is TN!
Now to answer your questions. Yes, the stand up tidbit you found about me online is me. I took a class here in NYC and enjoyed doing it so I got myself booked for a few gigs. That particular one was during a parental visit. It was supposed to be a surprise for my mom, but she too found the listing on line.
Yes, News 12 is similar to the station Ms. Scherbatsky on "How I Met Your Mother Works." Actually she is supposed to work for NY1, the Time Warner Cable owned 24-hour news station. I work for her competitor, the Cablevision owned 24-hour news station in the market. Thanks for asking! Plus, I think the smoking ban here in NYC and CT works beautifully for us non smokers. I can go to dinner or a show and not come out smelling like smoke.
