Hello fellow students!
I wanted to let all of you know that my Day 1 was awesome! Being in the same room and the excitement of being on the air live with Joe Grande was an experience that I am constantly thinking of all week. Can't wait for Week 2!
Joe had me read the scores on the screen and said that I was the best that he's heard out of all the students he had. He reconfirmed what I already knew - this is the career for me.
I also got to meet the guy at the station that prepares the announcer's clips on the games. I helped him edit the clips from 40-60 seconds down to 15-20 seconds. It's just another one of those jobs that somebody has to do. Seems to be these types of jobs at each station.
I also assisted Joe with some stats that I was following prior to our meeting. He used them on the air!
This is breathing exercise week, so I will push a little harder in yoga class this week.
Looking forward to next week!
