Stacey Handel’s Facebook comments prior to my New Year’s Eve gig was “That is awesome! Will you be televised?” I responded, “I don’t think so but maybe I can get someone to put me on YouTube!” That’s exactly what I did.
The City of Knoxville Special Events Office invited me to be the emcee for last night’s New Year’s Eve ball drop and countdown to 2014 on Market Square. I made announcements every half-hour starting 10:00 p.m. and then every fifteen minutes starting at 11:00. The on-screen countdown began at 11:55.
When my friend John Hudgens told me he was going to be there, I asked him to record a video that I could post on YouTube. Happy New Year!
