As some of you may have seen, I was on TV last night on the 11pm NBC Nightly News in the NYC area as The NYC parking expert to talk about how difficult it is to find Manhattan parking and how expensive the Manhattan parking garages are.
They called me yesterday and asked me to come in ASAP to Manhattan. I hopped a bus a short while later and met the reporter at the location. My bus had been in traffic and I guess they were in a hurry because as I got there and shook the reporter's hand, he was already positioning me for the interview. I'd say I was there a full 10 seconds and had a microphone in my face with the reporter asking me questions. The interview lasted about 5 minutes (of which they used about 20 seconds, as you saw) and they were gone. My head was kind of spinning, before I knew it I was back on the bus heading home. I ended up being out of my office for a total of 3 hours, about 20 minutes of which was actually spent off the bus in Manhattan. I'm glad I did it, though - I think it came out pretty good, it's great exposure and it's always fun to do those kinds of things.
