Hi Guys, here is the press release about me being on the NATIONAL PBS Show Biz Kid$

Press Release

February 28th 2008

Nick Barr and PBS Show Biz Kid$ Team up to inform youth on Finances

Seattle, WA- Youth bass angler Nick Barr and PBS Show Biz Kid$ are teaming up to teach young adults about finances. Nick Barr is participating in Episode 9 of the new Biz Kids series airing nationally on PBS. The show features kids across the nation who know about business. Nick's episode is based on the difference between Cash and Credit featuring Nick and his Legend Bass Boat and how he obtained the money to pay for it using credit. The episode will take a small dive into how to obtain a loan and the process. This is Nick's first time on national television and he says "It was great getting to film this, I had a lot of fun and the crew was great. I was really surprised to see how much filming it takes to put the story together. I look forward to seeing this show." Nick liked the idea of helping youth learn about finances. "It feels great; a lot of teenagers don't understand about credit and financing a major purchase. Many do not have a job and are very misinformed when it comes to finances. This show will help them when they get out into the real world." Part of Nick's success is due to his ability to connect with people. In the show you will see his industry partners: Legend Boats, Mercury Marine, Outdoor Emporium, Lamiglas Rods, KGM Baits, Quickdrops, Gamakatsu, Keelshield, Red Creek Embroidery, StowMaster Nets, Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits, Navionics and Gamma Fishing Line. If you would like to know more about Nick Barr, you can visit his new website: NICKBARRFISHING.COM. Nick’s show airs locally in Western Washington on Wednesday, March 5th at 7:30pm on Channel 12 KBTC. Biz Kid$ airs nationally every Wednesday at 7:30PM on your local PBS Station.

Hi, Nick. The production company called me on thursday to let me know the air dates and channels.

Those of you who have never met Nick, he does A LOT to further the public's awareness of bass angling in the Northwest, competing in tournaments, giving seminars (he will likely be involved at Outdoor Emporium in a Spring Bass Seminar soon), appearing at shows and working closely with manufacturers/advertisers to boot!! I personally and professionally have never met a young man who is more focused on his future than Nick and i consider it a pleasure AND an honor to be associated with him (and to be part of the upcoming television show-Biz Kids)!!

You're awesome!!
