Just Heather

A couple weeks ago I was contacted by a reporter from the Indianapolis Star. She was working on an article about rising grocery prices and had stumbled across FeedIndy.com. She came to the house to interview me and then followed me to the grocery store to see what I do. Her focus was on how local families were combating higher prices at the store.

I figured the local coverage could have a bigger impact on our business than CBS and the Chicago Tribune. I couldn’t have been more right. Since the article was released, we have seen a remarkable increase in traffic and I have been contacted by many people—old friends I had lost touch with, family members who saw my face (quite large and a little creepy) staring up at them and the news director for a local television station.

I have been invited to join their morning news team as a weekly contributor on the subject of shopping and savings. We have discussed the idea via email and phone. On Wednesday I will be meeting the news team to see if we are a good fit and discussing further details with the director. He already has several ideas on topics for my live segment. Me! On live television! Every week!

  1. I second that! I saw the article, it was lovely! Keep me posted!

  2. That sounds exciting! Remember though, it will soon wear off at home and you will go quickly from TVs “smart shopper” back to “MOM! She’s getting in my stuff again! Can you make her quit?!?!”

  3. That is so cool! Congratulations! Makes me wish we lived in the same vicinity so I could see you on the news!
