Wallenda negotiating media coverage for wire walk
From the Buffalo News:
The date for Nik Wallenda’s tightrope walk across Niagara Falls will be decided in the next two weeks after negotiations with major television networks, Wallenda’s manager said Friday.
Wallenda’s management team is in “very deep discussions” with the networks, which have expressed interest in filming the 1,800-foot walk across the Niagara Gorge and preceding training sessions.
“We’re hoping for a two-hour prime-time special that will essentially star two major outlets: Nik and Niagara Falls,” manager Winston Simone said at a marketing meeting held in Niagara County’s Center for Economic Development.
