MEDIA 'MINI-BLITZ'



OK, out of the blue yesterday around 5:00 I received a phone call from Gail Marshall, who produces radio programming at KYNO (1300-AM).


It was an offer to appear TODAY on the Bill McEwen Show around noon. Bill, a long-time Fresno Bee reporter and columnist, has a well-deserved reputation as straight-talking observer of the Fresno scene and (at times) a biting critic of what isn't necessarily right about it. Both I and my student collaborator Brianna Christoffersen will be Bill's guests at KYNO's posh digs. Cool!



Prior to appearing on the program, Central Valley Cafe Scientifique will have produced a press release for general distribution to the media talking up their organizing committee member's good fortune in winning a contest from a national magazine.


This will be a good opportunity to say some good things about my student, my school site and various ways the community can support science education. I will be talking up Cafe Scientifique, 'Darwin's Bulldogs' and the impending December visit of NCSE's Eugenie Scott, a coup for CSU Fresno's College of Math and Sciences. Funny how opportunities arise to 'spread the word' when you put yourself out there . . .
WOW!





BUT, if you don't catch the program live, there will be a podcast posted on this page. Thanks to everyone for supporting science in the Central Valley!
