Thumbs up See me on America's Most Wanted this Saturday

And the rest of the season as well.

Yup! That's right! But I ain't no criminal. You'll see my name in the credits under "Technical Director".

The program is now being taped (the phone banks are live on Saturday nights) in a Washington DC studio. You won't recognise the set because it's completely brand new and easily the most beautiful television set I've worked on! John Walsh is a pleasure to work with and very professional. They've also got a HOT reporter named Michelle, who made the effort to both remember my name and pronounce it correctly-- and she's not stuck up!

The set features many plasma screens (all fed video from me) and a cool computer desk with a flexible blue neon light that shines through the clear glass top. Also, this year, there is a new CSI set (you won't see that until the second episode) and a huge roll-in computer screen that is touch sensitive. But the best feature of the set is its shear size.

Anyway, if you get a chance, take a look at the new America's Most Wanted, or at least try your best to see my name in the credits while they're flying up the screen at warp speed!

Not sure what ya mean. The set is part of the overall set for America's Most Wanted. Yes, it's only meant to look real. But the investigators (uh... actors) behind the tables will be real.

I got confused about the "CSI set and the roll in computer screen" part. I thought you perhaps particpated in some work done with those CBS shows too.

It's good to know that there are nice celebrities out there that aren't full of themselves.

Well, I just bought a new digital camera because my old one died. It'll arrive in the mail in a week or so. You can be sure I'll post some pics once the camera arrives.

Our next taping dates are Nov. 14 and Dec. 19, so I'll have pictures around then. I'll also take some pictures of the set and control room.
