This interview really was arranged by a good friend
and lovely woman, Mrs. Doris Hollander, video editor
at KNBC News for in Los Angeles. I truly doubt if it
would have happened without her. She also has her
own cable show in the L.A. area -- and I got to appear
on that program a couple of times.
And it was great to get to hang around at the Burbank
studios of NBC -- on the same lot -- and in the same
building where they tape 'The Tonight Show - with Jay
Leno.' I Passed him walking through the corridors
there. He didn't seem quite so jolly as he does on TV.
Not so ironically, NBC aired my segment on
Holloween. I guess they thought it was kind of
'tongue-in-cheek.' Anyway, I caught the anchors
laughing at me a couple of times, when they thought I
wasn't behind them. But I guess that goes with the
Fritz Coleman was cool. I liked him -- and had been
watching him for so many years, it felt as if I knew
him. And I got to meet Kent 'After' Shocknek. He was
the guy that ducked under his desk - live -- during the
series of earthquakes in January 1994. He was a nice
man -- but I imagine that incident is a little hard to live
But I love Doris. Her and her husband were always
very kind to me -- and they got me access to a world
that I never would have seen otherwise -- the
westcoast hub of the NBC news network.
