O'Donnell Visits Shreveport
Oct. 02, 1999
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) _ When a Shreveport television station canceled Russ O'Donnell's talk show last month, she promised the station she'd visit their city if they put her back on the air.
The station did. And on Friday, O'Donnell was marching with the city's Captain Shreve High School band, cymbal in hand, as the cameras rolled for a segment of the show set to air Monday.
``Don't feel any pressure,'' she joked with the band members. ``Just remember, eight million people are watching.''
O'Donnell and her crew popped into a card store, the clerk of court's office, then drove to their only announced destination, a celebration sponsored by KTBS-TV, which returned her show to the air Sept. 20.
