Behind the Scenes At Channel 9

Add some frosting...some fondant flowers...and you've got yourself a wedding cake.

Add some frosting...some fondant flowers...and you've got yourself a wedding cake.

One of the more popular questions I get from viewers I meet out in the field is: “why do you look so much taller on TV”?!  I thought I’d explain.

Around here, I’ve become infamous for my desk-drawer, full of shoes.  Heeled shoes, flat shoes, sandals, boots…snow shoes…the works.  As a reporter, you never know what kind of shoes you’ll need for the day’s story.

When there’s a pant suit which requires flat shoes…that’s when the boxes come out.

You’re looking at the “weather plasma“– which is where we stand sometimes to switch things up.  When Joel stands over there, he uses a small, skinny 3-inch box. Kris Ketz is a bigger guy– he doesn’t use a box at all.

For me, <sigh>. One box isn’t enough.  I usually stack the tiny black box on top of the gray one– which can be scary!  No meandering!  Keep your balance! 

Can you imagine if I don’t focus and fall off the tiny box?  This would be a YouTube video for YEARS!

Happy New Year’s everyone– like I said during FirstNews today:  I’m celebrating New Year’s at 6:30pm, with my significant other, my two puppies and a glass of 1% milk! 

See you on TV tomorrow…that is for the people who wake up early tomorrow, or those who haven’t gone to sleep. 😉 Cheers!
