Work Experiment

by - January 12, 2010

It's been a crazy week so far, and it's only Tuesday!

Yesterday I came in extremely early, 3:00 a.m., to run the booth for the morning show. I ended up doing more than just sitting downstairs though. I edited scripts (to a degree) and added some stuff in so we wouldn't be more than a minute under on time. A minute may not seem like much, but when you're counting every second, a minute is an eternity.

Today I actually got to do some stuff that's mostly what my degree is in as an experiment with some new laptop editing systems that we just recently aqcuired. I went to my first Dothan City Commission meeting and filed stories to our website as it progressed. There were two major items on the agenda: approval of the new police chief & the revoking of a club's business license. Both were approved, by the way.

So here's what I did. I sent out the text alerts for both of these items. The Dothan Eagle beat me on the police chief story, but only because my computer decided to freeze on the send page.

Then, while the meeting was still going on, I wrote up the police chief article, and then I wrote up the Club Rio article. You should check them out.

And as always, you can find all kinds of interesting stories on our website:

  1. I'm just going to say this, and it may seem cheesy, but I was telling my Dad the other day about how proud I was of you. Lol. Can you believe that? I was all motherly and stuff about it. But I am, you know, proud. :)
