A big thank-you goes to WEDU-Tampa Bay PBS! I appreciate having had the opportunity to be featured on this terrific station for such a worthwhile cause as GulfWatch. Special thanks to Tara Slusher, Producer. Please take a look at the video at the bottom of this post.
PBS began the shoot on June 4 at Book Nook by the Bay, St. Petersburg, Florida, where I read and signed copies of, One Pelican at a Time. Very early the next morning, we continued the shoot both at the beach and at our condo on Clearwater Beach, as shown below in the video.
GulfWatch is a consortium of public media companies that create broadcast and digital content for various platforms. This one was done to engage and educate audiences about the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill and environmental issues because of it.
The public media stations include: WEDU-TV, and WUSF-TV/FM in Tampa; Louisiana Public Broadcasting; Alabama Public Television; Mississippi Public Broadcasting; WWNO-FM, New Orleans; WBHM-FM, Birmingham, AL; WSRE-TV/FM, Pensacola, Fla.; WVAS-FM, Montgomery, Ala.; and KRVS-FM in Lafayette, La. The Gulf Watch project was funded by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
