Roger Memos is a coordinating producer for the daytime reality show, Starting Over. He writes: "I am so honored to have been interviewed for the last issue of Keene State Today. I have had quite a journey from little old Keene to Los Angeles. I thank God that I had a year in Boston before heading out to LA. That year sorta "hardened" me and opened me eyes to life in the big city. Since the article was written, we ended up getting a pick-up of an additional 65 shows, so we produced a total of 155 shows. I've been off now for about a month. I am just getting my strength back after almost eight months of working six days a week, mostly 12-hour days. Still, it was all worth it. The shows look marvelous and I am so proud of the work I did.
