    Had to speak at a town hall meeting yesterday and saw myself on TV. It was pretty strange. Got me thinking that's the first time I've been on TV.

    I have a co worker who was interviewed by the local news twice in a month. Once for a car wreck and once because a bunch of cars got broken into in his neighborhood.

    Anyone been on TV?

    I hope you did a good job, otherwise that footage will come back to haunt you.

    When my local wrestling promotion left town, we had a meeting in a gymnasium. TV reporters were there and I gave a long speech about history and how much wrestling means to me, but all they played on TV was me crying and yelling, "It's Still Real To ME!"

    I was a guest on the morning announcements that broadcasted to every TV in the building in elementary school. I was too scared to look directly into the camera and mumbled when I spoke.

    Technically I was on TV.

    I was on cops once.

    This cop was patting me down and he's like "what's this?" And I was like, "my penis"

    I have been on the local news a few times in background and I also attended the tappings of some shows so I might have been in a shot of the audience.

    About 10 or 11 years ago I was interviewed on the corner outside my apartment building by a local news channel about something. Just your typical local story, probably about some new municipal government policy announcement or something where they’ll just ask random citizens their thoughts. Don’t remember anything more than that.

    About ten years ago I did movie background during Summer of 07, I was in a couple of TV shows and movies. Never seen any of the footage though.

    The apartment complex when I lived in Phoenix was getting a lot of break-ins even though it was gated. The news showed up when the lady that lived across from me was surprised by someone in her apartment that proceeded to beat the shit out of her instead of just stealing things. The next day one of the channels was there to do a story about it and as I was walking to my apartment they asked me if I wanted to do an interview about the safety of the place and so I did it.

    In 1993 I was also interviewed by the news when I lived in California when a guy climbed a Eucalyptus tree and refused to come down to stop a company from cutting it down to make room for apartments for elderly people. I remember them talking about it on the Today show and that fat jackass Rush Limbaugh even talking about it.

    Here is a link to the story.

    They cut down the tree a year or two later IIRC.

    with a group of friends we used to enjoy cliff jumping at the local open air quarry (which is now a kind of lake). It's strictly illegal, a few death every year, the water is really dangerous even for experienced diver.

    Then one day, we were met there by a tv crew, we were all interviewed and the cameraman kept asking us to jump in the water. We finally did it and when we came back on land ... fucking chief of local police was there waiting for us. We were set up ...

    My jump made it on national tv

    yes.. I'm the weatherman (not meteorologist - I know, it's currently my life's major dilemma at the moment & this has been really causing me the greatest hardships ever experienced thus far) for a morning show on one of the major television broadcast networks here in NY.
