Here is a scoop! Kerri-Anne Kennerley featured Lesley Dewar and Stories My Nana Tells’ website and red helicopter logo on her TV show, Mornings With Kerri-Anne on 5 August 2010. It was an unexpected interview about politics and Twitter, and gave great exposure to the new website.
Getty Images sent a professional photographer to get some file photos. Imagine their shock, horror!!! Someone who “might” be having an impact on the election and not a photograph on file. How hilarious!
Not too soon after this, the photograph turned up in a French newspaper, in an article discussing what kind of internet France should build for itself, for the future. It was closely connected to the problems the Australian Government was having with rolling out the NBN, due to the sparsity of population in certain areas.
As an aside, that black Greek fisherman’s hat was a favourite of Lesley’s. She lost it while she was touring around New York on the upper level of a “hop on – hop off” tour bus. There was no saving it!
Kerri-Anne Kennerley got a pre-launch sneak peek.
At that time, in August 2010, we were not ready to launch the site at Stories My Nana Tells and her TV show managed to get a sneak preview for the interview.
Kerri-Anne Kennerley loved Stories My Nana Tells (even though she was interviewing Lesley Dewar about Twitter. Throughout the interview, the screen shots gave Stories My Nana Tells quite a plug on the show. You can view the video on YouTube – just click the picture below.
