NBC4’s Fritz Coleman Holiday Toys for Tots Campaign Bus with Susan Gaede in Brea Downtown.

Well, it was a ride chasing NBC4’s Fritz Coleman promoting his Toys for Tots holiday bus campaign. He was due to broadcast live in Brea Downtown last night at 11:00 p.m. while featuring the Eagle Hills Neighborhood on TV. Some people say he was spotted at Country Hills Elementary, others say at Brea’s Sports Park, but Susan Gaede and I found him at 11:00 sharp at Primose & Foxfire Street in the festive neighborhood of Eagle Hills.

Eagle Hills home owners, Bertha & Jose Moreno pose for a photo with Fritz.

Fritz and company set-up in front of Bertha and Jose Moreno’s beautifully decorated home with all their neighbors anxiously waiting to be on TV. It was a long process, but well worth it.  Everyone had a great time experiencing live local action news in progress.

Lights, Camera, Action – the moment everybody was waiting for.

Prior to each live segment, and there were at least four taken, Fritz would gear up in a serious thought process manner before going live. It was definitely fun to watch as he is a pro - reporting for 30 years now!

Neighborhood kids are chosen to do a special holiday greeting from Brea.

We heard that there will be a holiday segment this Sunday, December 23 on NBC4 featuring Fritz’s Toys for Tots campaign stops – you’ll see the neighborhood residents of Eagle Hills shouting “Happy Holidays from Brea.”
