... And I Love My New Office

Updated: Oct 26, 2020

I had a great conversation with my friend Dune Nguyen on his Facebook Live show called Conversations with Dune & Friends.

We covered a lot of ground including: gymnastics, music, Guinness World Records, leadership, Bright Nights, Access Television, Toastmasters, CAPS, racquetball, Pan American Games, pulmonary embolisms and swimming with my grandson.

It's a long interview, and you probably won't be interested in all of the topics so in this post I'm going to focus on a few of my favourite topics.

(If you'd like to watch the full 90 minute interview, please scroll down to the bottom of this blog.)

Let's start with the chance encounter I had in an elevator that lead to me being a reporter on the Learning & Job News.

Here's what you'll see in this 13 minute video clip:

  • Moses Znaimer from MuchMusic purchasing ACCESS Television and producing the Learning & Job News.

  • How attending an Edmonton Chamber of Commerce networking event lead to me being interviewed on the Learning & Job News.

  • My first day as a reporter on the Learning & Job News, and how Neil Wilkinson, got his new office.

  • The Body Break jingle (and Dune singing it. )

  • Why I had to bring my own extra's when we shot the May We Talk? series at the Inn on 7th.

Dune Nguyen (00:47:43):

Tell us a little bit about... you did some work with Shaw Cable? Or was it ACCESS Television?

Barbara May (00:47:51):

ACCESS Television.

Yes, this goes back a few years. ACCESS television used to be owned by the government [Government of Alberta] and they ended up selling it to Moses Znaimer from MuchMusic.
