A Lizard's Diaries Part 3: Welcome to the Big Apple

Ah…the sights, the smells, and the sounds of the big city! New York gets to me every time! There is just something about this mega metropolitan city that is so incredible. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in such a small community or if it’s because there are so many opportunities waiting around every corner. Here’s a sneak-peak at our media tour in the Big Apple…

Scooter ny

First stop was Pix Morning News. We had to wake up extra early to make the call time at 6:45am! I love this picture of Scooter waiting inside his dressing room (Too bad mine didn’t have any lights)! If Scooter only knew that he shared his dressing room with some very familiar faces including the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus.


The segment was a success! Here’s a shot after of Tamsen Fadal, Scooter, myself and Lisa Mateo from Pix Morning News. To see the segment click on this link  http://corbinmaxey.com/http://weblogs.wpix.com/news/local/morningnews/blogs/2009/11/animal_magnetism.html


Next stop was CBS News (which was clear across town). I could not have been more thankful for my manager Marta who knows the city inside-out. We made it just in time to appear with Cali Carlin on her popular cbsnews.com web series.


The segment was shot LIVE in the CBS Newsroom. I was so happy Cali (pictured above) was such a good sport! She even gave up her banana for Scooter! To see the full show click here www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kNc5D-d8go
