I have been avid reader all my life too 🙂
What was your very first job in media? #BTSCelebs
I did an internship at @kezi9 in Oregon. I was hired as a writer when my internship ended. Also ran the teleprompter!
Interesting…. Did you enjoy working @kezi9?
Yes,it was a wonderful station near the U of O. But it’s been decades since I was at @kezi9!
Was it easy to obtain contacts in the field you wanted to pursue with your 1st job? #BTSCelebs

I agree… Did you face any struggles during your career? #BTSCelebs
Nothing I couldn’t overcome.#BTSCelebs
:)…..Currently, what time does a news reporter/anchor start their day? #BTSCelebs
Depends on the show you work on. I get up around 1:30am to prep for @WGNnews at 4:30am.
That is extremely early. You have to be commended for your dedication #BTSCelebs
