Once again, blogging has opened an amazing door for me. On Saturday morning, I made my live local news debut! I was extremely nervous, but so happy that I was given this opportunity.
Earlier in the week, a contact from the station reached out to me and said they were looking for someone to do a segment for National Nutrition Month. They sent me some talking notes and questions I could expect to answer. I was also given the task of bringing some examples of recipes and healthy food choices.
The thing that surprised me the most about the whole experience was how few people are actually in the studio during the broadcast. I know there are people behind the scenes, but while I was there, the only people in the studio were the anchor, the weather reporter, and one other person who moved all the cameras around, mic'd me, and got me from the green room before the segment. It's a well oiled machine!
So, want to see the segment? (I still can't bring myself to watch it!) Here it is:
