Ask Wendy Venturini Your NASCAR TV Questions
We are continuing the "Ask a Real TV Person Stuff" feature here at The Daly Planet, and this week we have Wendy Venturini from the SPEED Channel.
Update: The question window is closed. Thanks for all the great posts, we will be sending your questions over to Wendy. Please check back with us for her answers on either Friday or Saturday. We also have a surprise guest for next week...and it's a biggie. Stay tuned!
Wendy is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Communications and has been both behind and in front of the camera. She was a Producer for Victory Lane and NASCAR This Morning before moving back on-camera for the Craftsman Truck Series and then RaceDay. She has also hosted a NASCAR Hot Pass channel for DirecTV this season.
Most veteran racing fans are familiar with the Venturini family, who were featured in an earlier Daly Planet column that can be read by clicking here. For more info on Wendy, click here for her official bio on SPEED. Fans can also access her personal website by using this link.
This week Wendy has been kind enough to take some time out of her off-season schedule to answer some reader questions. For those of you new to The Daly Planet, here are some helpful hints about this feature:
Ask one good question, because we get a lot and multiples don't usually make the cut.
Our blog is about TV, this is an opportunity to ask your TV-related questions.
Questions about network issues or programming are not something announcers deal with.
Asking about other TV networks is a quick way not to get your question answered.
This is a great opportunity to think about the issue that you would like to get a direct response from Wendy about, and simply ask it. She is a true television professional who stepped-up and agreed to participate the first time we asked.
This is what we are trying to do at The Daly Planet, take the mystery out of NASCAR TV. You may know Wendy as a reporter, but hopefully your questions will help all of us to know her better as a person.
You may ask your question by using the COMMENTS button below, and then following the easy instructions. Please read the rules on the main page before posting.
This page will remain up until Wednesday, and then we will forward selected questions to Wendy to answer. Look for a new article with her answers Friday or Saturday. Thanks again for taking the time to stop by The Daly Planet and participate in this on-going Internet conversation.
