This Day in the Life video takes you on a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s really like to anchor, produce, report and be the acting news director for two newscasts…all on the same day!
Thank you to the Wyoming Association of Broadcasters for giving me this Best Breaking News Award for the second year in a row. Here’s the unexpected story of how I won it:
I will always be grateful to Ballet Wyoming for encouraging me to dance with the company while being a full-time TV anchor, producer and reporter…and for arranging my rehearsal schedule to help me juggle all four jobs!
That’s exactly what the court cases I report on feel like!
My first-grade teacher said that I probably wouldn’t be able to graduate from high school because of my dyslexia. I was furious and vowed to prove her wrong. It was a long, hard, road from there to graduation, with honors, from my dream school, Vanderbilt University. Looking back, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Putting in all that work helped me overcome my disability and prepared me to become a news reporter and anchor. I firmly believe that any parents who are cheating to get their children into college are not only doing something illegal, they’re doing their children a disservice. Hard work directed toward a worthy goal strengthens us and gives us self-esteem. None of that can be bought with bribes.
