A Very Special NECN NewsNight

October 10, 2008

Jim Braude on NECN’s NewsNight will host tonight what in the 1970s was called “a very special episode.” Tonight is the regular NewsNight quiz. It is no surprise that I will be a contestant, having competed on many occasions. The special aspect of tonight is that the show’s diabolical producer, John Van Scoyoc, has scheduled my wife, The Fabulous Dana, to be among those competing against me. This should ratchet up the already high stakes on what is already high intensity television. Dana has a solid grounding in current events and a rapier-like wit especially when it is directed at me. Such programming schemes are undoubtedly what t.v. professionals must resort to when the Boston Red Sox are in the ALCS.

The show will air at 8 p.m.

Catch me tonight on NECN NewsNight before you enjoy your holiday weekend. The topic is, what else, the 2008 presidential race.

I heard a rumor that I’ll be on with the witty and indefatigable James Pindell of Politicker, whose new site PolitickerMA has everyone talking.
