person to do a recorded
Ted Williams was George
Bush . This interview was done
exclusively by WINGS Sports in Manchester, NH
Ted Williamís hotel room during the afternoon of January 18, 2000
just before the
Annual New Hampshire
In addition to
we also did interviews that afternoon with
former Boston Red
Dennis Eckersley, and
Rico Petrocelli. The interviews were
Massachusetts and all of
on our television show
WINGS Sports. This
show received mass media attention throughout the
and has been mentioned in various newspaper articles, television shows
and radio station programs throughout the country. One of the
newspapers the show was mentioned in was "USA Today".
WINGS Sports best know show was this
Ted Williams- George W. Bush interview show. This show was
arranged and produced by Frank W. Wing for WINGS Sports.
These photos on this web were taken from the videotape of that interview.
Throughout Ted Williams' career he has had a somewhat touchy relationship
with the news media. Therefore, it seems fitting that Ted Williams'
last recorded interview was done with President George W. Bush and not
with members of the news media. For more
information and pictures from the interviews we did that day go to our site:

Williams and George W. Bush.
