Today I produced an interview with US Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner for CNBC. He stopped in Anchorage on his way to the G-20 Summit in South Korea.
When I did the location scout, I sent a pic of the Chugach mountain range under a bright blue sky...well, that was yesterday and today it rained! But we set up a tent and as you can see, the satellite truck operator and I stood as a human shield with umbrellas to block him from the wind, which worked great!
He was answering questions live on air for a show called "Closing Bell." I found it interesting that his people said he'd never done an interview via satellite with a reporter in studio. Luckily, it turned out perfectly! He spoke of going fishing in Alaska quickly before heading of to South Korea, but I think he was joking.
The bottom pic is us with the satellite truck operator and the makeup artist.
