This show was one of my most memorable shows.
After a week in an ice storm crippling homes with power outages and damage, I spent the night at the station and couch surfed where I could find power. On Friday of that week, I experienced my first earthquake while doing web. I sent out alerts on social media, our website and text alerts. I even snagged some air time talking about the significance of social media.
To un-bury my lead, I continued to produce through the weekend. Two shows each day at 6 and 11. I came into work at 3 o'clock both days to ringing phones and a blank rundown.
Each show was all-local and every person on the weekend crew contributed ideas and critiques to create the best 30 minutes of news for our viewers.
