I wanted to share just how proud I was of the 23ABC/KERO-TV team this past Tuesday, November 8, 2016. This slideshow represents moments throughout the evening in order: Crew members posing for a picture just before a special 3 p.m. newscast (NOTE: these were just the folks there at the time; we had about twice that many people working that day); one of our reporters practicing on our touchscreen monitor; the anchors during a special webcast; and members of the team watching Donald Trump’s victory speech (as you can see on the clock, just before midnight on the West Coast).
I’m so grateful to be part of this team. I’m proud of how we delivered critical information to our viewers in innovative ways before, during, and after the election. And by all accounts, it was a success on many levels.
America will no doubt continue to experience growing pains as we make the transition from one president to another. I’m honored to be a journalist, and I look forward to the continued challenge and responsibility of keeping the public informed and engaged. And I’m happy to be doing that with this talented group.
