NBC Nightly News with Brian WilliamI wasn’t going to mention this until after it aired, but Danny Sullivan tweeted it to his 70,000+ followers this morning.

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams asked me to be interviewed today on the highly anticipated Google search announcement. The announcement is at 9:30 PST (12:30 EST) and my interview should be around 1pm (EST) at NBC’s headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Center.

I’ve never been on national television so this should be an excellent and exciting adventure.

For all I know, they may cut my interview completely. Which is why I didn’t say anything. But maybe I’ll get lucky and get some air time.

The show airs tonight on NBC (channel 4 in my area) at 6:30 EST (not sure when on other time zones). So make sure to set your TiVos and DVRs. If you don’t get that channel, I assume it will be posted later on in the day on the Nightly News web site.

Personally, I go offline at 7pm for the next three-days, so I won’t be able to comment about it all until Sunday, at the earliest.

Even better, I have no information on what Google will be announcing today. I have my assumptions and predictions, but none of it is confirmed. Personally, I rather not know, I like it better that way.

Update: Interview is over, I did it at their HQs, they interviewed me over the air via their Burbank office. Someone asked me questions and I heard them in an ear piece in my right ear. I had to pretend to look at someone to the right. Still don’t know if it will be on tonight, but here is a picture:
