Television interview spotlights Woody Weingarten

'Rollercoaster' author debuts on TV, on Comcast — an interview also slated for YouTube 

No matter how hard I try, I'll never be another Kim Kardashian. 

I just don't know how to promote myself that well.

Besides, I've never made a sex tape.

And don't plan to.

Celebrity isn't what I'm looking for anyway. But I — Woody Weingarten — would graciously accept fame as an adjunct to selling thousands of copies of my VitalityPress book, "Rollercoaster: How a man can survive his partner's breast cancer" — and, thereby, effectively spreading the message that male caregivers needn't remain an invisible part of the breast cancer equation.

David Perry, host and a longtime communications pro, did the interview for my debut, which covered not only my book but my leadership of the Marin Man to Man support group for 20 years.

The show is "Ten Percent" — on Comcast Hometown Network Channel 104, a cable station.

My part of what's known in the trade as Episode #173 follows an interview with Linda Crawford, executive director of the Presidio's Interfaith Center.

The program, taped in a San Francisco studio April 23, will be telecast repeatedly — at 11:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. from Monday through Friday, May 18-22, 2015, and then again at 10:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, May 23 and 24.

And by midweek, it should also be available on YouTube, just in case you're not a Comcast subscriber.

David, producer of the show, which is aimed at the LGBT community in Northern California, was efficiently assisted by his coordinating producer Michael Micael.

They made the whole thing a breeze for me, so easy I came out saying, "Today, 'Ten Percent,' tomorrow, 'Good Morning America.'"

From my lips to the ears of God? Well, I can dream, can't I?

CEO and founder of David Perry & Associates, a "strategic communications firm," David specializes in community and government affairs, social media, public/media relations, and crisis communications.

The show, not incidentally, will also be able to be screened, 24/7, "On Demand" through Comcast (by choosing "Get Local" and "Comcast Hometown," which will take you to "Ten Percent").
