Quite a few times actually. Usually news peices and local interest stories but a few documentaries and Real TV as well.
Lots of newspaper stories, magazine articles and a couple books.

Oh, I won an Emmy too.

Well, part of an Emmy. I was in and shot footage used in a local Fox TV sports spot with Chip Carter. He said the Emmy belongs to all of us.

I was on screen for about 10 seconds in a NBC Nightly News story about coporate layoffs in 96 or 97. I was working in a GTE call center making and routing trouble tickets. We knew they were filming us but I never thought much about it one way or the other.  When I saw the piece later I had to laugh out loud. Anyone that could lip read would have seen me say WTF? in reaction to whatever it was I was reading on the screen in front of me.

I once made a flag/banner that was on a guy parachuting and may have made it on TV. Never got to see a video of it though.

My daughters have also been on TV a number of times. One of my daughters has enough time on TV that she has her SAG card. Another one was on Baywatch several times and was offered a regular role. (She turned it down). My oldest daughter was on a number of game shows.

My oldest daughter is also the type who just seems to get picked out by the news crew whenever she is around a major event.

After the Northridge earthquake she was standing at the train stop one evening in Burbank, because the train was the only way to get to work for a while. There was a NBC news crew there broadcasting live. The train announcer came on the loudspeaker and asked everyone to move back of the yellow line. The news crews lights were in everyone's eyes and they couldn't see the yellow line, so my daughter turned to the cameraman.

"Excuse me," she said, "But we can't see the line. Could you point those lights another way for a minute or so."

The cameraman ignored her.

She tapped him on the shoulder. "Excuse me," she said, "But could you turn the lights away for a little bit?"

The cameraman ignored her.

At that point, she stuck her hand up in front of the lens -- blocking the shot -- and said "EXCUSE ME!" The cameraman roughly grabbed her hand, twisted her arm and pushed her out of the way. My daughter (all 4 feet 11 inches of her) was about to launch a full attack when somebody pulled her back and told her to just let it go.

A few minutes later the reporter was looking around for someone to interview and who did he pick? My daughter. He walked over to her and said, "Excuse me, but can we interview you for a moment?'

On live TV my daughter turned to them and said, "You want to interview something? Why don't you interview this finger you almost broke!"

I was interviewed going into a gunshow once, but since I didn't meet their idea of a gunowner (dumb uneducated redneck) I was cut from their report.

I was on the local news once.

Me and two friends skipped school and camped out overnight at the movie theater the day before tickets went on sale for the Star Wars episode 1.

Sometime in the morning one of the local news stations had a reporter and camera man talk a few people in line.

They talked to my other two friends, but I was asleep. I remember waking up seeing a camera pointing in my general direction, I rolled over and went back to sleep.

Saw a small part of that on the news later that night but I didnt record it or nothing.

In addition to being on the History Channel tonight, I have been on TV lots of other times. I have been interviewed several times for local and national news shows. Once debated Orrin Hatch on TV briefly. One appearance on Oprah Winfrey against William Bennett. I was on another short-lived talk show "The Mo Gaffney Show".  Several local cable shows. I was on the game show "Split Second" years ago (won $290 and some makeup for men -- missed winning the car by a hair). My wife was on The Price is Right (won nothing -- didn't follow my directions), and we were both on Let's Make A Deal (won $150 - Monty gave away very little on that show)  Tom Brokaw called me for an on-air interview during one of the national elections a few years back -- I wasn't home. It was just as well. I didn't want to talk about the election, anyway.

My wife was also an extra in the movie "Coach Carter".  I was also on the news almost every night for a while during the 2000 elections. I was working for NBC in Burbank, doing their election-night web site. I worked right behind the place where they always do those short spots of the reporter in front of the busy people working in the office. I was also interviewed on TV in the UK years ago as one of the stranded travelers when they grounded all the DC-10s. I told them I was tremendously bored by it all.

There is more. I just tend to forget about a lot of it. Being on TV and in movies and stuff is fairly routine in my family.

I have been featured on TV several times. Usually followed by the sentence "If you have any information as to the where abouts of this man you are asked to call the police immedately".
