CBS Sunday Morning is scheduled to air their examination of the science of pursuing new species this weekend.
Will Exists, Cryptopalooza, and the International Cryptozoology Museum be highlighted when CBS Sunday Morning broadcasts their cryptozoology segment this Sunday, November 11, 2012? Television is a rapidly changing medium and the latest word is that the cryptozoology segment shall be aired this coming Sunday.
Here is what the CBS site says:
In Jefferson, Texas , a group of like-minded (or should we say, like-obsessed) people gathered to swap stories of strange sightings – mysterious animals and elusive creatures lurking in the deep woods. Serena Altschul reports on the science of hidden animals.
Scheduling conflicts, breaking international or national events can always change plans and timing is fluid. Tone, as reflected in the website teaser, may be different than noted. Also, it is not truly known what will be included.

This fall, producer Mary Lou Teel and her crew, along with senior (but youthful) correspondent Serena Altschul visited Portland, Maine’s International Cryptozoology Museum, and spent a full day filming at the site, interviewing me (Loren Coleman), and talking to visitors to the collection. Then during the weekend of October 20th, the CBS folks journeyed to Cryptopalooza in Jefferson, Texas, and they recorded hours of background footage and interviews.
CBS also may show a micro-second screening of a few clips of the new Bigfoot film, Exists, (set in Texas), also on their broadcast of CBS Sunday Morning.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
