I received this in an email:

We have a very exciting opportunity to put food allergies at the forefront of news.. Jane Pauley of NBC is going to do a full show on food allergies -- specifically, what are food allergies, why are they increasing, what is it like for children who have food allergies, and their families and communities. Several families will be interviewed as will a prominent pediatric food allergist. We have been asked to forward the attached email to families, support group leaders, and others who will help get the word out that: (1) individuals and families with food allergies are welcome to be audience members on Friday, October 15, 2004 - taping will start at 11:30, but you must arrive by 10:30am and (2) if you have a child between 8-13 years of age, please contact them if you are interested in you and your child being interviewed.

We need your help to make certain this show is a success. Please continue to pass this on... and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Nyja Greene at NBC - she may be reached at 212-664-5325.

Thanks so much!

I emailed Ms. Greene. I'll let you know what she says, and if we go to the show.

Did you email the show at the above link or did you have Ms. Greens's personal email address? I emailed the show at the "tell us your story" area. I hope to hear from her as well. We live in Charleston, SC so I don't think that we will be able to show up for the studio audience.
What a great topic for a show!!

I don't know the air date, but FAAN has already been contacted to be on the show. For the Chicago area Jane Pauley airs at noon on WMAQ. It looks like you can submit your story at [url="http://thejanepauleyshow.com/talktous/guest.php?topic=54"]http://thejanepauleyshow.com/talktous/guest.php?topic=54[/url]

Nobody has responded to my email, so I called for tickets - (212) 664-3056. I'm planning on attending, so I'll take notes and post about how it went.

I have not had a reply to me email either. I live to far to attend, so I will have to be content with watching the show and requesting a tape.
