To in­fin­ity and be­yond

New York Post - - NEWS - — Car­los Greer, con­trib­u­tor, “Page Six TV”

Af­ter 40 years of Page Six ap­pear­ing as the printed word, the gos­sip col­umn took a leap to the tele­vi­sion screen this year with “Page Six TV.” I’m a con­trib­u­tor on the show but was nearly side­lined be­fore it even started. A gi­ant slide at the Min­nesota State Fair nearly had me down for the count on my very first as­sign­ment. My co-host El­iz­a­beth Wag­meis­ter and I at­tended the fair on the first stop of a sev­en­day tour to pro­mote the de­but of the show. We wrapped two morn­ing shows, ate some cheese curds and fried al­li­ga­tor be­fore I dis­lo­cated my shoul­der on the slide. I ended up be­ing rushed to the hos­pi­tal in a very bumpy am­bu­lance ride, but I made it to the next city the same night and con­tin­ued the tour in a sling. Need­less to say, I did not want that on Page Six. Af­ter a year of work, the show de­buted on Sept. 18, and three months in, we’ve cov­ered the big­gest sto­ries of 2017 — in­clud­ing Matt Lauer and Har­vey We­in­stein’s sex scandals. But meet­ing our view­ers has been the most re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. My fa­vorite was at­tend­ing Janet Jack­son’s con­cert at Bar­clays Cen­ter and the con­ces­sion stand guys yelling out, “Hey! If you don’t want it on Page Six, don’t do it!” I avoid fair slides now.

Peo­ple call out tips to my col­leagues Wag­meis­ter, Bevy Smith, and Watch our host

John Fugel­sang. Work­ing with these three and our in­cred­i­ble pro­duc­ers and crew has made pulling dou­ble duty as a colum­nist and on-air tal­ent worth it. Here’s to 40 more years of Page Six, and the show with it.
