    From Trains.com:

    World's Greatest Hobby on national TV
    World's Greatest Hobby ambassador to show train layout on nationally-televised Fox News Channel

    John Vanacore, an ambassador for the World’s Greatest Hobby program, owns The Round Hill Store, a train store in Connecticut. One of his customers is a producer from Fox and Friends, a national morning television show on the Fox News Channel cable network. John often talked with the producer about the fun and fascination of model trains. He must have done a great job, because on August 14, 2003, he will be given a guest spot on Fox and Friends to demonstrate how simple it is to get started in model railroading.

    For the interview John will bring along his portable HO scale 4 x 6 foot layout that will be featured the January 2004 issue of Model Railroader. John's segment will air at 6:30AM EDT. Consult your local listings for the Fox News Channel in your area. To learn more about John’s train company, visit his Web site at www.ATSFTrains.com.

    I get FOX news with Fox and Friends in Australia on Foxtel cable. Any idea how far behind the shows are? I have a feeling they're in real time so I'll adjust for the time zones and hopefull catch the show.
