True North on Television!

True North is very pleased to announce that it was featured yesterday in a two part story on KDKA News.

After spending two days with reporter, David Highfield, and cameraman, Ian Smith, a few weeks ago (about which you can read in a previous blog, “True North prepares for Television“), the story finally aired in a two part series.  The first, during the 5:00 hour, showed David tagging along with a group of students during a “Basic Wilderness Survival” course as he learned about survival training.  Then, in the second piece which aired at 11:00, David worked to demonstrate some of his new found skills … including starting a fire as it rained!

BroadcastAnyway, you can just watch for yourself by clicking on the following two links:

1. Teaser (that ran throughout the day leading up to broadcasts)

2. Broadcast (David’s article includes the two video links)

Thank you, David and Ian, for preparing such a nice story and making this process much fun.

And, without a doubt, a tremendous amount of thanks to all the students of True North who really made this story possible.
