Larry Lewis is Commodore of the North Texas River Runner's- (hopefully soon to be an ACC chapter) that's the kayaker they were interviewing and the paddler in the blue boat is Joe Brunno.

The three paddlers are Larry Lewis, (being interviewed, he's North Texas River Runner's Commodore), orange boat-a fairly new paddler Matt Perada, blue boat Joe Bruno, and there was a quick shot of brand new paddler Rick Augsbury.

As a former TeeVee reporter I can attest that we are a lazy bunch. :)
Accuracy is important but really just covering our butt is more important. I suspect that the park superintendent or perhaps even the "expert" kayaker said that this was the only class IV and V rapid around here. He/she was probably considered a "reliable source" and few people would question it.
Skoboten!

Larry knows, and has been on other stuff up there, so it wasn't him. We all want to move up there, ha ha.
