Wow! It is so hard to believe that I am on the home stretch of this internship! I have been having so much fun getting to know everyone at WAVY and working on The Hampton Roads Show. I have a little more than three weeks left and cannot wait to see how they go!
This past week was an absolute blast! On Monday’s show, Ms. Deidre Hall from the NBC soap Days of Our Lives, talked about her new book and her show.
She was gracious with the audience, guests, and the crew and gave us all the opportunity to take a picture with her. On Tuesday’s show, I got to meet local author Joy Hook and let me tell you, she is one of the nicest guests we have had on the show so far. She came to the show to promote her new children’s’ book, “Erin’s Magic Tree (Circus) Adventure”. Her interview with The Hampton Roads Show was her first on any televised program, so she was quite nervous. She was also very polite and gracious with everyone, even when I kept having trouble with her mic. I would keep an eye out for her because she is going to do great things in the future. As always, we had amazing chefs who cooked us great meals and a wonderful dog for Thursday’s Pet Pal!
During last Thursday’s show, the show aired the second edition of our Historic Homes series that Elise McGlothian, Megan Vazquez, and I have been working on. This edition focused on the Herbert House in Hampton, the oldest house on the Virginia Peninsula. Putting together the package took a lot of hard work and effort from all of the interns. We had to go to the house to shoot the footage and spent several days editing the package. Needless to say, it was all time consuming and tedious. However, by the end of the process, we were satisfied with our finished product. Unfortunately, the package was preempted by breaking news so many of our viewers missed the package. However, you can still check out the package on http://wavy.com/category/hr-show/. Special shout out to photographer Pat Dowd who worked tirelessly with us and was patient with all of our questions!
We at WAVY have also been busy working with the Top 5 for the Face of Fox competition. Now you may wonder what the interns would have to do with such a project. Well, we have to help discern which clips from the Face of Fox promotional events go into the final Face of Fox package. We also helped take inventory of the Face of Fox set that will be used during the Face of Fox reveal on Tuesday August 5th!
Last week was such an incredible week and I was so excited to be back on the Hampton Roads Show after working a week with news! As for now, I am heading on vacation to Michigan for a week to visit family. I will be back at WAVY next week to finish my internship with The Hampton Roads Show!
