Actual Breaking News! At about 1 PM Eastern, on Friday, CNN Headline News will show a 1.5 minute segment about Lolita.
We've done it! At 8 AM Pacific time there were 79 comments, the story had been viewed 334 times, and the ratings were 5-star.
Shelby wrote this morning:
This is the message I woke up to! I spoke to Noelle and she is a delight and happy to run this story around 1pm eastern time today. I will be on for a 1.5 minute interview discussing Lolita's situation and how I got into it, which means orcanetwork.org will get mentioned A LOT! She wants a student's take on it.
Yay, Howard, Lolita is going WORLD WIDE! This is really going to stir things up!
Many, many thank yous to Shelby.

I'm trying to reach Shelby regarding an ireport she submitted. I'd like to learn more about Lolita and perhaps do a story on Headline News.
Please call me - thanks!
Please don't let that stop anyone from making further comments on the IReport story. I've read them all and every one is totally supportive.
