Title: Cricket Magazine Group on tomorrow's Today Show
Post by: Lenzi on July 21, 2010, 10:31 PM
Tomorrow (Thursday) at 8 a.m., the Today Show on NBC will feature some of the award-winning kids' magazines from the Cricket Magazine Group in their segment on how to keep kids reading and learning during the summer.

I don't know which of the mags will be showcased, but I'm kind of hoping the cover of the current issue of Cricket will make an appearance, since the first part of my serialized story is inside! Now I only wish we had t.v. reception.... If anyone sees the segment, I'd love to hear how it goes! Thanks!

If I weren't in Italy, I would have watched it, Christy! Do you know which issues they showed? Is there a link that we can watch?

I didn't think they would replay news shows (Actually, I don't even know if the Today Show is a news show--I've never seen it), but maybe they do--I will check. Thanks, Natalie.

Found the segment: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/38359812#38359812

Highlights for Children, Cricket, and National Geographic for Kids were mentioned/shown only briefly, but it's a good segment with some helpful hints about how to keep your kids reading over the summer!

Nice segment, Christy! I'm sure Cricket was happy with the plug, and I hope that means even more kids will get to read your stories. :)
