I was spotted on RTE One during the Irish Lotto draws on a live broadcast from the 2012 Tall Ships Festival in Dublin. I along with my mum had seen ourselves on TG4 on Christmas Day 2014 while the station was filming for Nuacht TG4 at the Christmas Lunch in Blackrock, Co. Dublin.

Beirut Explosion

Sky News bureau badly damaged.

I wonder what the cost & timescale would be for Comcast/NBC News to now repair the damage now that they own Sky News. Is this bureau in Beirut worth long standing significance to Sky News. Have they had it in their possession for a long time?

Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

Regis Philbin was part of television royalty in the U.S. His work in it's television industry throughout his whole career was 2nd to none.

His role as host of WWBTAM was groundbreaking to watch when the show was beginning in it's infancy in the U.S.

It was really a wonderful experience to see his some of his TV broadcasting craft come alive when I had watched the recent ABC documentary about the show in the U.S. on Youtube when his old friend Jimmy Kimmel was appointed host of celebrity versions of the show. I'm so glad that Regis had the opportunity to visit the most recent of Millionaire when it was airing on ABC this year.

It's really sad to hear tonight that Regis Philbin has passed away. The man was a living legend to television hosts worldwide.

May he rest in peace.
