A Baltimore County student made a cameo appearance on an episode of “The Daily Show” that aired Monday night in a segment about the youth-led “March For Our Lives” over the weekend.
Josie Shaffer, 18, a student member of the Baltimore County Board of Education who attends Pikesville, was interviewed by “Daily Show” correspondent Desi Lydic in Washington over the weekend as part of a group of teens.
A producer with the show had reached out to her on Friday, Shaffer says, to arrange to meet at the march. A longtime fan of the show, she says she couldn’t believe it was real at first.
“I’ve been watching ‘The Daily Show’ since middle school,” she said.
The high school senior stayed up late to watch the segment and was texting with her friends from Pikesville as it aired.
