Exciting events Joseph Pratt's interests

My fame actually lasted longer than one second!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts. Today, I’m going to let you revisit a blog post from March of 2016.

Back in March of 2016, I went to the Home and Garden Show with a relative. It was at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Downtown Pittsburgh. Now, WPXI always talks about this event in one form or another in its newscasts during the month of March … and I just happened to walk past one of its cameras while I was looking at the exhibits upstairs. Now, little did I know, I would actually appear on WPXI’s newscasts not long after I walked in front of one of the station’s cameras. I didn’t see a red light on it or anything. I guess it must have been on whenever I walked past it. Whenever they showed the event the first time, I appeared on the station for about one second … and, then, when they showed it again a few days later, I was on there for about 5-10 seconds. I was on both WPXI and PCNC that month. I have appeared on WPXI before whenever they would do the MDA Telethon at either Monroeville Mall or the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills. I was putting money into their “fish bowl” whenever I appeared on Channel 11. I was on there several times back in the 2000s. Now, when I appeared on the MDA Telethon on WPXI, I spoke for a second or two … and, when I appeared on WPXI and PCNC three years ago, I said nothing. I guess you could say I have become a “local star” in some form.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around April 23rd in previous years …
I bumped into two people at Kohl’s recently! (April 23, 2018)
My semi-chaotic day at work (April 24, 2017)

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

IMG_20160313_121755 On March 5, 2016, I went to the Home and Garden Show … and I happened to be walking past one of Channel 11’s cameras while I was at the show. Later that evening, I appeared on one of PCNC’s newscasts. Several days later, I appeared on Channel 11’s Sunday Morning newscast for a few seconds.

A few days ago, I appeared on one of PCNC’s newscasts for about one second while they were talking about the Home & Garden Show.  Well, one week later, they talked about it again on Channel 11’s Sunday Morning newscasts … and they showed a clip of me walking past one of their cameras … and I was actually on that newscast for about 5-10 seconds or so.  So, my fame actually lasted longer than one second.

Surprisingly, it’s not the first time that I appeared on Channel 11.  I actually appeared on their…
