You are an incredibly accomplished individual! What have been some of the most rewarding elements of your jam-packed career?
Thank you, that’s very sweet of you to say. There are so many great opportunities that my job has brought me; I have met some amazing people and had the honor of telling their incredible stories. Each day is different; I walk through the front door of the station and I don’t know what the day will bring. I like that — it keeps me on my toes. I love that I get to work on live television — nothing makes you feel more alive than when that red light goes on and you know you are live in front of thousands of people. The adrenaline is something else! I work with an incredibly talented group of people who all share a common goal of producing a quality newscast. My co-workers are also trusted friends.
One of my favorite memories is when I went to New York and co-hosted with Regis Philbin on “Live! With Regis & Kelly” (Kelly was on vacation). It was a huge moment — I’ll never forget that experience.
I have worked really hard to get to where I am. To some it may look like it came easy, but it didn’t — it’s been a 17-year journey, and in some ways, I feel like this is the beginning of an exciting new chapter.
