Media Attention Grows!

Posted by vohnjec on June 22, 2010

We already posted a bunch of newspaper, radio and television links but today on day one we had the Daily Local, Action News 6 (who ran the story at 12:30 and again at 6:00pm), TV-69 in Birdsboro (http://www.wfmz.com/berksnews/23997337/detail.html). The Reading Eagle, specifically Jessica Bakeman interviewed us and posted an article the next day, and per the previous blog post, a 40 minute segment on www.pennspeakradio.com.

Tomorrow, we are already confirmed to visit with the Carbon County Friends of Animals in Jim Thorpe and will be met there by Blue-Ridge-13, and the Times News. As we roll on, we have a 10:30 in-transit interview with WNEP, TV-16 from the Scranton area and the another radio interview with http://www.pennspeakradio.com from 11:00am to 11:45am with radio personality “Doc”!

What more? Stay tuned and keep tracking us and donating!

Here are a few more photos from today.

Day One is Done!

Posted by vohnjec on June 22, 2010

We completed day one a bit more quickly than expected and arrived at the Country Inn and Suites by 4:15pm with an averege speed that was around 18 mph.
The amazing thing about Lehighton is that people know each other so as we speak we are on the radio at
www.pennspeakradio.com

I will give you another update shortly but now we are on air talking to Casey Parker.
