The Story of the FENX and NBC News II: Going Live

Last Friday I received an unexpected but welcome e-mail from Carl Sears, the NBC Nightly News producer who has worked tirelessly to create the NBC story on The FENX Project started in 2004 by my Dad and I. (I wish all folks in the news business were as great as Carl has been.) In the body of the e-mail Carl informed me that the story had gone live on the Internet that morning and that it had been sent to all the local affiliates around the nation. To say I was surprised was an understatement – it had been over a year since the process of creating this news piece started and no one was sure if it would ever air (the hope was always there but the reality of the news business and the need to maintain continuity within a broadcast can make it tough).

Since then, the last few days have been a flurry of activity on Facebook and Twitter, responding to comments from people and tracking the different sites and outlets that have hosted the video. It’s a great thing that the world gets to see the FENX and how awesome it is, not to mention getting to “meet” the hero of the story – my Dad. One of the surprising things has been the reaction and support from family and friends around around the country who have shared it with others. At the very beginning of this journey I was keenly aware of the fact that I did not know how the story would end, and I still don’t but as always, the adventure continues to roll on. Back when I was interviewed by Cedarviile University about the FENX, I said that I knew God’s fingerprints had been all over this project from the beginning; it’s still true and we eagerly await what will happen next.
