MNN Show "Gotta Run with Will" Introduces "Moments" Videos

Programming Highlights By Lee Walker Helland

We love this! "Gotta Run with Will" executive producer Will Sanchez has debuted an online series of videos titled "Moments"-- short clips featuring remarkable exchanges from his talk show. The one- to two-minute videos offer fun, dynamic glimpses of interviews with the people who make the NYC running world the inspiring arena it is.

So far, "Moments" has featured famed runner and activist Kathrine Switzer talking about "261 Fearless," a movement that originated from her bib number in the 1967 Boston Marathon, in which she was attacked; and renowned running historian Roger Robinson on witnessing a legendary win at the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo.

Great concept, and smart way to offer easily-digested snippets of your show to people who are curious about it. Check the "Gotta Run with Will" YouTube channel for more "Moments"!
