Fox TV Channel 43 will feature tonight (Sunday 2/21) at 10 PM a segment about Evelyn Miller including interviews with several Filipino-Americans who knew Evelyn, her Pastor Father Keith Carroll, her Church’s Knights of Columbus “Grand Knight” (leader) Robert Cosgrove and Emy Delgaudio, Chairman of the Philippine American Heritage Council which she helped form four years ago. The segment will repeat five times tomorrow, Monday, 2/22 starting with the early morning news edition.
Delgaudio read a prepared statement about Evelyn on camera before answering questions about her role as a volunteer and helper for charitable and civic causes in the community including her helping form the Philippine American Heritage Council in 2012.
The TV interview that Fox TV Channel 43 requested took place in response to the first story (and news release) which was released and announced by the Philippine American Heritage Council at their Facebook Fan Page, via their Kalayaan News e-newsletter and to the local news media by twitter, fax and email yesterday.
The newsletter article about Evelyn and her role as a founding member and leader of the Philippine American Heritage Council generated the highest interest in any article ever posted at this location by a factor of over 5-to-1 according to the website analytics. For the interview requested by Fox TV Channel 43, they honored the request to have it take place at St. Patrick Catholic Church in York City, one block from the accident which claimed her life this past Wed. 2/17. (see the article HERE).
For the interview, Fox TV also honored the request of Philippine American Heritage Council to include Pastor Keith Carroll, Bob Cosgrove – who is also the York area working group chairman for the Council – and four of those present at the founding of the Philippine American Heritage Council who participated in that first Heritage food and cultural booth which entertained 400 people at St. Patrick Church.
In addition to Father Carroll, Bob Cosgrove and Emy Delgaudio, also making appearances on TV are: Jenny Hauser, Mary Ann Paniza, Milagros “Mila” Thomas, and Gilora Lease. The on-camera TV interview was very politely, professionally and courteously handled by multi-media journalist Leah Kirstein, whose work will also appear on the station’s website.
Following the TV interview at the Church, the group of five Filipinas and two other Council members walked one block away to the site of the accident and placed flowers and candles at the site, and then prayed for Evenly Miller. The event was also filmed by the TV crew.
There is a small “shrine” with signs and pictures of Evelyn at events of Philippine American Heritage Council which was left with Father Carroll’s permission in the hall of her Church. The photos used in that display will later appear on this website.
