Before he was the David Muir who now heads ABC Nightly News, he had interviewed me. Yes, on national television. Here you can see the clip. Diane Sawyer was still the number-one.
The nation had just climbed out of the worst of The Great Recesssion. Despite being in my mid 60s and competing with Millennials, I was hired for a full-time job in downtown Manhattan (mostly telecommuting). The gang at ABC found out about that through this blog. They called me, congratulated me, and then asked if I wanted to tell the world my story.
For much longer than 15 minutes, I was famous. It seemed like everyone in the 1,400 unit complex in which I lived had caught the news that night. My former blog coach Paul Chaney had been watching the news at his mother's house and "couldn't believe" I was right there on national TV. Former clients sent emails.
I wish Muir great success in this leadership opportunity.
