Yesterday I had an awesome interview with the co-host of Windy City Live, Ryan Chiaverini. He is certainly a down to earth guy, has a real perspective on life, but he is on TV and he showed me some weird things that happens to him. I guess once you get on TV, some people just unleash their inner-weirdness. I can't share those stories, but let's just say... it was WEIRD!
Another cool thing happened: Ryan also brought along another news reporter, Jason Knowles. Jason was such a sweet guy as well and I hope to interview him soon because I know he has seen some crazy shit being the criminal investigative reporter. Chicago is a wild place, y'all.
The coolest part about my time with Ryan was when we walked outside of our shoot location (thanks to Rockit for allowing us to film in their venue) and I offered to drive Ryan and Jason home; and they accepted and we got to know each other even more, outside the interview-esq environment.
The moments I will remember most about yesterday are: I had the chance to meet two real people who have real stories and were so open to talk to me and Lindsay (and our viewers) - I also have to give a shout out to Lindsay (who is pregnant). She filmed our interview, was cool with taking Jason and Ryan home and continues making serious sacrifices for me and the show.
The Scott Emo Show family is building a Chicago talk show from the bottom and one day I to will become a Chicago personality so I can continue meeting great people that will inspire our viewers. It's a game and a business, but at the end of the day, but it's the only life I want to lead and live. I look forward to continuing this journey with all of you amazing people who believe and support the show and I look forward to meeting every fan soon!
