Nicholas Nip to Appear on National TV on Monday

Chess Life Online reports that San Francisco star Nicholas Nip will appear on the morning program Live with Regis & Kelly on Monday. As reported extensively on this blog, Nicholas became America's youngest chess master ever, breaking a record set ten years ago by GM Hikaru Nakamura. Hikaru appeared with Regis Philbin back in 1998 and now Nicholas gets his turn in front of the lights.

On Monday morning, Nicholas will answer questions and play a 10 board simultaneous exhibition on live TV. As Richard Shorman's photo at the left from the 2007 CalChess Scholastics proves, Nicholas has experience giving simuls. The program will air at 9:00am on KGO channel 7 in the Bay Area and KCRA channel 3 in Sacramento. I doubt that Nicholas will be shy in front of the cameras; he sometimes tells people that he wants to be a rock star when he grows up. Rock on, young man!
