The segment on rabbits is tentatively set for airing on Easter Sunday, March 27 in the "CBS Sunday Morning" program between 6 am and 7:30 am. Check your local listings.

John Goodwin's official title is Digital Journalist/Associate Producer, he works out of the CBS Network San Francisco Bureau. He covers from hard news to fluff pieces for the network programs, including but not limiting to CBS Evening News, 60 Minutes, CBS This Morning, CBS Sunday Morning, ... John graduated from the Journalism program at the University of Oregon then moved to NYC to work for CBS. He was recently transferred back to the west coast to work at the CBS San Francisco Bureau.
Betty is pretty sure that this is the fluffiest piece John has ever covered! How many of the above scenes are to be used in the segment, no one knows. There will be editing done to combine the filming done in CA and PA and to fit the allotted time in the "CBS Sunday Morning" show on March 27, 2016.
In tomorrow's post, we'll see photos of CBS crew filming in PA.
