You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Dealing with the Press


Friday, Nov 17, 2006 from Roseburg, Oregon

My time in Roseburg was in large represented by press and media. I can’t deny that all the newspapers, radios, and TV stations are all part of the experience on this trip. Let’s break it down while in Roseburg: 4 times on the air on Best Country 103, on the air once for the oldies station, 2 TV spots on the news, one newspaper article, and then the Hallmark Channel following me around all day. Everyone in Roseburg might be sick of hearing my name by now.

It’s been pretty cool to generate all this attention for the trip, and I’m thankful for it. It has all helped boost the trip, mostly by getting me in touch with more and more people across the nation. I say it again and again that the small e-mails I get from people every week from across the country is one of the most encouraging aspects of the trip.

I’ve enjoyed all the opportunities to be in a radio studio, meet reporters, and see how the whole thing works. One of my first thoughts back in my freshman year of college was to major in journalism. I never went that direction but it seems like they all have great jobs, something I would really enjoy doing. Also, I very interested in the technology that goes into all of it today. If the opportunity came up to do some type of broadcasting or journalism in the future I would probably take a crack at it for a little while. I’ve learned a lot about the various professions just by being on this end of it.
