A sun I submitted to CBS was shown on the CBS Sunday morning broadcast on March 31, 2019 following a story about wrongfully convicted artist Richard Phillips who created art in prison for decades. So I was astonished when I got an email with the subject line “We’re using your sun again tomorrow” from Jessica Frank with CBS Sunday Morning and she said:
I wanted to let you know that your yellow and black sun, which is SO cool, will appear on our Sunday Morning broadcast tomorrow, at the end of a story that we’re doing on Street Wear. It’s the perfect ending.
On Sunday morning June 23, 2019 the sun aired for the second time on the show at the end of the Street Wear Segment which you can see below.
A few weeks ago I submitted suns to CBS Sunday Morning (click here to see post). The sun above was selected and aired on the March 31, 2019 broadcast of the show. Jessica Frank, the person at CBS who curates the selection of suns that air on the program, wrote me the following about airing my sun:
“I’m writing to let you know that one of your GORGEOUS suns will be on our Sunday Morning broadcast tomorrow. Steve Hartman is doing a really moving piece on a former convict/talented artist, and your sun is absolutely perfect at the end.”
The piece she is referring to is a moving story about wrongfully convicted artist Richard Phillips who created art in prison for decades. It was his way of surviving it knowing that he was innocent. This offered freedom that could not be taken away. Humbled that my sun was chosen to follow this story.
