I do a tech blog for 3news website which is completely unrelated to this other than they asked me if i knew any WOW players who wanted to be on TV, possible 60 minutes article.

I've contacted a couple of people  i know who play, but if anyone else is keen can you drop me a line with your contact details and name ?

Cheers
Liz

You could try offering the players in-game gold?

Please interview them using their avatars, not real ppls. I'll be sure to watch that.

It really depends on the tone of the article. Frankly, an awful lot of TV reports on online gaming follow the "aren't they weird" genre of journalism.

Unsure to much about the details at all, he just said WOW players. I'm guessing documentary style so no particular leaning .
You can check that out with them anyway, im only handing a list of willing sucke^H^H^H^H^H people.

How hardcore you want the WoW players be? I'm more of a casual player although I haven't played/been on it for the past 9 months or so.

Here's an example of the cringe worthy coverage of gaming you'll see from the mainstream media in NZ, this ones from a few years ago now.

I imagine they'll be doing a rehash of the same sort of thing for Wow's 5th anniversary.
