The State Worker

Chronicling civil-service life for California state workers

May 31, 2009
News 10 broadcast, online shows to feature The State Worker

We're scheduled to make an appearance Monday morning on News 10's broadcast / Webcast, "Live Online," from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The show starts as a live segment at the top of the station's 11 a.m. newscast on Channel 10. It then pivots to the Web via streamed video and shifts into a more conversational tone with the host (Sharon Ito, in our case) interviewing the guest and sprinkling in questions submitted by online users.

"Live Online" rejoins the news broadcast at the bottom of the hour as the host and guest summarize what they discussed.
