On Tuesday Vote to Make One of Our Own A Star!
On Tuesday Vote to Make Brad Hook an Anchor for the Today Show. Brad Hook has qualified as a semi- finalists in the Today Show competition. His video airs today. Go to http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17150789 sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday and vote for Brad. It is a vote for the cattle industry.
Here is the note that Brad sent to all of us:
Attention: Everyone Rural and the Entire Show Cattle Family I NEED A HUGE FAVOR! This is NO JOKE! Every morning after I get the wife and kids off to school I watch our local NBC TV station's morning news and then the TODAY SHOW, while I drink a pot of coffee to try and motivate myself for the day. The Today Show was running a contest to submit a 2 minute video of yourself to try and earn a spot as an ANCHOR for Today, for a day. I thought it looked fun but didn't do it. Then, they started airing some that were sent in and they weren't very good. Since I had just bought some film production software for a new cattle venture, I thought I might as well throw my hat in the ring and see what happens. Today at the Iowa Beef Expo, while I was getting our steer ready for the final drive, my cell phone rang and it was the Today Show telling me I had made it in the sweet 16 semi-finals and that I needed to fly to New York to be on the Today Show LIVE! Here's where you come in. My Video airs this Tuesday against three others. If I win my day, then I get to stay until Monday to compete against the rest of the weekday winners. I'm asking us to bond together as the great rural people we are and pull an American Idol type voting pool for my video on TUESDAY. You can vote on the Today Show website or by texting. This will air between 9 and 10 am on TUESDAY of this week and I will be on WEDNESDAY LIVE! I promise I'll try and give our way of livin' the best NATIONAL COVERAGE it can get. Thanks in advance for your support. Sincerely, Brad Hook
