When it comes to news, I’m an AM girl.
I love being on a morning show.
yeah, the hours suck.
yeah, I suffer from a chronic case of FOMO. ( & don’t care because at this point nothing is better than sleeping )
yeah, there was a period of time where I was surviving on Little Ceasar’s Crazy Bread & half hour naps, but I still like it.
I like that it’s okay to stop and laugh at a story, and yourself.
I like the quick pace, but easy-going nature.
I also like the human interest/feature pieces…but I’m also a fan of new challenges. So when my manager said he needed me to fill for the weekend evening show I said “let’s do it.”
- My normal weekend AM show runs an hour straight, then we go off air for an hour for children’s programming, then back on the air for another full hour. When I got done anchoring the Saturday night shows all I could think was “Are we really done? The show is really over?”
- Keeping chat with the sports & weather anchors relatively short and light which is the exact opposite of how we do it in the AMs… When there’s time to comment on stories and make a few jokes here and there.
In conclusion, I’m going to continue to try more things in 2016, and your favorite dress can make you feel invincible 🙂 (dress: Ralph Lauren, necklace: Ebay, photos: Eric Ripper)
