Tempe’s annual “Santa Show” airs tonight

 

TEMPE, Ariz. – Forget standing in line at the mall, waiting hours to
talk to the big guy in red, only to find that your little one is
terrified of sitting on his lap. Tempe has the perfect way to tell Santa
what you’d like for the holidays: The Santa Show.

 

For the sixth year, Tempe 11 will air the live call-in show hosted by
Dick Steely and starring the man of the month, Santa Claus. It is a
popular tradition for Tempe children who watch the show live on the
city’s cable channel, and for the viewers everywhere who watch it live
on the city’s Web site, www.tempe.gov/tempe11
<http://www.tempe.gov/tempe11> .

 

The show is the creation of Media Services Producer Greg Wolfe, a
17-year city employee, as a way to put smiles on the faces of the young
and young-at-heart during the holidays. He produces the annual show
along with Media Services Administrator Skip Neeley and Media Services
Producer Jason Wolf.

 

This year, The Santa Show will air Monday, Dec. 11, starting at 6:30
p.m. Children can call 480-350-8900 to talk to Santa. The show could
last until 8 p.m. because the crew never cuts off a child waiting on the
line to talk to Santa – they’ll keep taking calls as long as they come
in. The show also features segments highlighting the many holiday events
in Tempe.
