Nita Gill on Live TV – San Diego Living

Nita Gill with Kristen Mosteller on San Diego LivingIt’s been a crazy busy week!

One of the highlights is that two days ago I made my first live TV appearance. San Diego Living asked me to come and do a segment on fruit decorating. On Monday, July 3rd i spoke to the segment producer and the very next day, I was on TV.  Since it was July 3rd, I showed a couple of red, white and blue 4th of July ideas. I was instructed to keep it very simple so that the hostess, Kristen Mosteller could make something along with me in the short time of the segment.

Getting prepared for the show was a little nerve racking. (I was also preparing for a big 4th of July party at our home the next day.) Because it was a new experience for me, I didn’t quite know what to expect. But nerves turned out to be unnecessary. When I got there, the segment producer Tiffany, the hosts Marc Bailey and Kristen Mosateller as well as the crew that I met made me feel welcome and comfortable. Once we were under way, it was fun. And quick! Four 1/2 minutes felt like 2 minutes.

One of the things that I found interesting is how the whole show seems to run so efficiently. There were 4 different studio sets in one room and they just whipped right through all the different segments one after the other. I guess that’s what live TV shows are all about. It was interesting to see, and be a part of.
