The Insider

Date and Description
Fountaindawg's Recaps
June 17/10 "The Insider" entertainment news show included a short interview clip on air & posted a slightly different version on-line. Though short, they covered a lot of territory! Clay talked about the impact of becoming a father and briefly addressed his 'coming out' process, even getting in a quick plug for the 'Timeless Tour'. While promoting 'Tried & True', Clay spoke about connecting to this music and said he is an 'old soul'. He has a solid comfort level with this genre. A few short clips from the PBS special were shown. A 'then & now' photo comparison showed that someone at the show was 'asleep at the wheel'. In most markets, the photos showed Clay in Idol and Clay now. However, a few locations saw a comparison shot of 'Clay now' with AI5 contestant Michael Sandecki, the not-so-talented wannabe-lookalike that Clay surprised on-stage during the finale that year. Time for a new 'fact checker', Insider!
