Putting the puzzle pieces togetherJune 12th, 2012 at 1:15 pm by arielbrown under Interns
Tears were shed, children were screaming and homemade signs were being waved from left to right. The Admirals were home, and they brought the Calder Cup with them!
There were about two hundred fans waiting to greet the Admirals and congratulate them on winning the Calder Cup. The team was definitely enthusiastic about being home and more than willing to talk to us and their fans. All of the team members and the coach agreed that their 28 straight winning streak and their sweep in the finals would not have been possible without their incredible fans.
After chasing down a few players for interviews, Jason did two live shots for the evening news and the day was complete! When I got back to the studio I got practice writing packages, which is definitely like learning to write in another language. It requires a conciseness and ability to understand what the soundbites are saying and how it will appear to those that are watching it.

Oprah Aha Moment of the Day: Writing a package is an art. Seriously. The time that goes into making a package consistently flow is a lot and it requires some critical thinking, like putting a puzzle together, because you have to know where each piece (soundbite and voice over) go.
