I’m lucky that my memoir No Letter in Your Pocket recently appeared on air on the book shelf of Keith Baldrey, Global TV’s bureau chief in Victoria, BC. Keith tells me that this means a viewership of approximately 400,000. What great free promotion!
Each year, Keith gets hundreds of books sent to him from publishers and does his best to promote them on his TV book shelf. Keith and I know each other from our university student media days. On a recent trip to Victoria, he gave my friend Chris and me a private tour of the legislature, press room, media offices, his broadcasting studio, and the legislative library, which has Shakespearean books from the 1600s. We got to hear entertaining insider anecdotes and even watched his live broadcast sitting next to his desk. A wonderful surprise and treat. Thanks, Keith.
