Interactive Easter Eggs

by - April 08, 2010

For the past couple of weeks work has been pretty cool. The hours still suck (working from 11pm until 7am will never be cool), but in spite of that I really do enjoy my work and the morning show has become like my pet. We've been trying new things and are working on making the show more interactive, which will be challenging but oh so rewarding.

Take the Friday before Easter, a.k.a. Good Friday. On the spur of the moment, I got this idea that the kids who watch our show (you'd be surprised at how many really do) would like to see Gina and Martha dye their own Easter Eggs. So we did a 3-4 minute egg-dying segment at the bottom of each hour. And it was awesome. I'm not sure if this will work, but here's the link to the video our graphics op posted on facebook.

We want to do more stuff like this to break the monotony of a news-heavy two-hour broadcast. Bringing in guests, even if it's only for the second hour, is going to prove difficult because of the early hour, but there are definitely things Martha and Gina can do to make the show more morning-friendly.
Here's a list of some of our ideas:
  • Fashion How-To's, i.e. how to put together a coordinated outfit, what to wear to a formal event, etc.
  • Morning Exercise like yoga or things you can do while you're getting ready to tone your abs or butt
  • Breakfast Ideas, including some of Martha and Gina's favorite recipes and maybe bringing in a guest chef
  • Holiday How-To's, i.e. economical wrapping, egg dying, etc.
I would love to hear some of your ideas for things you'd like to see if you were watching my show. You can email them to me at or

  1. I like the fashion how-to's and the breakfast ideas. Or maybe it should be breakfast at night ideas. Because you know, my mornings are in the evening. ;)

  2. I will be your guest. For two hours I will teach your viewers how to be awesome, like me. ;) :P

  3. Ideas? Meh. I'm not so good with those actually. Oh well.
