My Pictures Featured on the Springfield5 Station

Well, it finally happened. I became a television star. I’m recognized on the streets and I have a loyal fan base (consisting solely of my  wife, parents and grandparents).  I think “star” might be an exaggeration. Perhaps “some random guy on public access” is a better term. How ever it’s defined, it was my first time on television and it was actually pretty cool.

The producer of the Springfield5 station saw the pictures I made for the Springfield, Ohio: A Glimpse of the Past collection and asked me to present them. It was a lot of fun sharing some of the history I learned about Springfield, Ohio. I’ve received a lot of great feedback from people, especially from those who remember when downtown Springfield was bustling. It was also fun seeing myself on tv though it was painfully obvious why I never perused a career in front of the camera.

In case you don’t happen to catch it on Springfield5, they posted it on their YouTube channel

I have a lot more pictures in that collection with several projects I haven’t even started yet so hopefully I get a chance to do it again in the near future.

    Really enjoyed your look back of Springfield. I have many photos of downtown from the late 1800’s into early 1900’s & would be glad to share them with you for future projects if you care to use them. Feel free to e-mail me at any time.
