So the first leg of interviews related to the big news I shared with you guys yesterday is over.
I woke up at 4:30 am PT today to get on the phone. I spoke with 19 different radio stations: 2 of the interviews were live, one with a station out of Salisbury-Ocean City, MD (with a host by the name “Bulldog”) first thing and one on a nationally syndicated food show, not too long ago.
The other ones were taped and will be airing in the coming days/weeks. The stations covered states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kansas and South Carolina and cities like Boston, Chicago and Dallas, TX.
It was interesting to talk to the different hosts and hear their take on TuDiabetes.com (yes, I mentioned TuDiabetes.com no less than three times during each interview), the Diabetes Hands Foundation, the Word In Your Hand project and, more recently, the DiabetesHandprint.com web site.
I sure hope many, many more people touched by diabetes hear the interviews and, as a result, join the community and choose to submit a photo of their Word In Your Hand through DiabetesHandprint.
Next up, TV interviews next week… I will keep you posted about those after they have occurred.
