LG's Dave VanderWaal talks TVs...and his suddenly famous daughter Grace

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, July 20, 2016

A good summer for a bigger screen TV.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.     Maybe you don’t need a giant screen for the political conventions, but the Summer Olympic Games are right around the corner…and that typically prompts lots of TV upgrades.   LG has been busy installing LG Experience displays at Best Buy stores around the country….

“We’re trying to make it as simply and easy to understand technologies like OLED and 4K and HDR in a relevant way.  And so we’ve got five televisions that are all up on the Experience wall.”

LG Marketing VP Dave VanderWaal.    If you’re a fan of America’s Got Talent,  the VanderWaal name might ring a bell.   The LG exec’s 12 year old daughter Grace is a contestant who has wowed viewers and the judges with her singing and song writing …

“We went into this on an open call.  And we’ve watched this build and build to now where she has truly gone viral.”

And there’s more to come.  Of course, Dad would prefer you watch on an LG TV.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
