My First!

Yes, I know what you are thinking…”We know it’s your first blog entry” and for that you are correct! However, it was also my first time to the event formerly known as “Fan Fair!” It was a hot and hectic week! It all started Wednesday…I was downtown in the coolest clothes I could find, but sill sweating that make-up right off! There was a slight breeze, which was nice except my hair was all in my eyes. I was ready to ramble about downtown festivities and the big parade on the news, when my phone rings. It was the station and they needed an anchor to fill in for the 4, 5, and 6 O’clock newscast! Typically I would jump at this opportunity and would be honored to sit by the legendary Bob Mueller, but it’s 3 O’clock and I don’t even have a suit! Rough!

Needless to say I rushed home threw one on, and did the best I could. I didn’t have time to read my scripts and I was quite overwhelmed by my quick change of environment. Bob was a great coach and helped cheer up my frustrations! The whole experience was just a slight reminder, this is how the news business is! At any second my story or day could change and that’s what I liked about this business in the first place.

This was just the beginning of a VERY long week!
I’ll get to the rest of my “Fan Fair” week soon…stay tuned!
