On April 13, 2015, Clay Aiken was a guest on the Washington Journal, a morning TV show that has been on C-span since 1995.
The format of the show is simple. The host has a few minutes to interview the guest and then the phone lines are open. Calls come in from the general public and from every political party.
The Washington Journal is a 3 hour show that usually features elected officials, government administrators and journalists.
Clay was on the show for about 45 minutes. The call-in questions were mostly positive. Clay answered the callers directly. He never side-stepped the questions or tried to change the topic. It was impressive to see that he didn’t get rattled by the few negative comments.
Clay presented himself as smart, quick-thinking, and intelligent.
The following are a few pictures and a video from the broadcast.
