NY Space Contact - TV Coverage


Managed to catch a couple of TV news reports of the ISS Contact with the
school in Wyoming County, NY.

WGRZ-TV Channel 2 from Buffalo, NY ran a clip that was about a minute long
showing the kids reading their prepared questions to the astronauts and the
astronauts responding.  Quite nice coverage...and at the end of the clip the
news announcer mentioned that "ham radio is a good hobby".

WGRZ-TV was using the report as a "teaser" earlier in the evening so that's
what alerted me to watch the local Buffalo newscast.

WIVB-TV Channel 4 ran a shorter clip maybe 20-30 seconds with mostly
a "voice-over" report.

I managed to catch both clips on tape.
