James Whelan Butchers: Butcher Does Chat Show

Pat Whelan on TV3 Morning ShowYou’ll never believe what happened last week! I was sitting in the office with Robert (@Rob_JWB) when I was contacted by Laura Hogan(@hoganlaura) from TV3 who told me one of my followers (@adrianshanahan) had highlighted our website as a newsworthy piece for ‘The Morning Show‘.

Before I knew it, she had convinced me to appear on last Monday’s show with Sybil Mulcahy and Martin King. This is the first time I had ever done anything like the “Chat Show” for television. So I set off to Dublin actually looking forward to the experience and for me looking forward to seeing the inside of a television studio and the workings of same.

I was greeted by Laura and introduced to Sybil who made me coffee and made me feel very much at home. I was then introduced to the make-up team who worked their magic on my ‘beautiful’ face. The waiting area is an open space in the middle of the television studios and while waiting I was being passed by all the different personalities we have all grown familiar with from TV3.

I got a great sense of live television and all that goes with it as I waited for my interview. I must say it’s a very creative zone and lived up to all my expectations. I had imagined that the interview maybe scripted but I was delighted that Sybil and Martin conducted a normal conversation with me and I think it always helps in delivering a more natural interview. A big shout out and thank you to Adrian Shanahan for all your support. I hope you enjoy the interview.

  1. […] Anyone who knows me will testify that I’m a harsh judge of things but I could not speak highly enough of their online presants. A friend of mine @hoganlaura works on TV3 as part of The Morning Show so I hit her up with a quick tweet saying she should put them on TV, and a few days later Pat Whelan was making his TV debut.
