pJust wanted to let everyone know who is in the Boston, MA area that on Channel 56 (WB)they will be airing our television interview on Tuesday April 10th at approximately 7am. They interviewed us about our 2 1/2 year olds PA allergy and why the new legislation that will mandate EMT and First Responders to carry Epi-Pens is so important to us. They also interviewed Representative Donnely-who is the man backing up this new proposed law. They will be airing our interview on their morning program which runs from 6am until 8am. (They have us tentatively slotted for 7am. ) They also talked about airing the story on their Monday Night April 9th on the 10pm news-unless something more "news-worthy" happens that day. Please tune in and tell your friends and family to watch and call/email their local representative to support this important bill. (The bill will be voted on/introduced again on April 11th)br /

I video taped U56 from 6:00 - 8:00 AM this morning. I'll watch the tape when I get home. I could only stay awake last night until 10:30 PM but from watching the "coming up" list of topics, it didn't seem they were going to air it. Am I right? Was it on this morning around 7:00 AM?

Well, they aired the story this morning at 5:45am!!!!!! Earlier than they told me they were going to!! (Due to the whole governer switch thing) I am so upset because I also set my VCR to tape between 6am and 8am! So, I did NOT see it! I just spoke to the Producer and he apologized and is trying to get in on the 10pm news tonight and possibly on tomorrows morning program. We can only hope!
thanks for tuning in...maybe your VCR taped before 6am on accident??? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
