Hoppy Leap Day!

Greetings from the morning show! What a crazy semester it is turning out to be. Classes are really starting to pick up with tests, homework, and projects. Just have to focus on the fact that I graduate in 6 months! August here I come!!!

Things are picking up here at the station as well. Working with Lisa has been an absolute blast! She's so sweet and makes going to work at 3:45am lots of fun! I even get to try my hand at the wheel when she goes out on location. I get to sit in the 24/7 Weather Center and flip through the show for her. It's exciting to have a little extra responsibility!

I've also been coming in to get some more practice in on the Chroma Key (green screen). We've started taping some of my efforts so I can learn from them. I feel like I've really improved and become a lot more comfortable up there. Lisa has given me pointers on technique and style. Hopefully after more practice, I can get all of the nerves out and put together a great audition tape. There are so many other talented interns here, I just hope I can keep up with them!

I hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather that we've been having! I don't have class on Fridays so I'm definitely going to go outside and enjoy it! We will be flirting with record high temperatures tomorrow as well before we cool off quite a bit on Sunday. Enjoy it while it lasts! Enjoy your leap day as well! It won't be February 29th for another four years!

What a Month!!!

Hey everyone, Chris here with another blog. It has been yet another great, yet crazy past couple weeks. School has started, the internship here at 7 News has been great, and the weather has been "fun" as well.

At the end of January I attended the annual American Meteorological Society National Confrence which was held in New Orleans. N0t only did I have a blast visiting New Orleans but I also learned a lot about job opertunities and recent developments in the field of meteorology. Did you know that corporate buisnesses higher meteorologist just so they can recieve accurate forecast so that their product can be delivered on time? Neither did I, until now. After learning so much more about other opertunities in the field of meteorology their is still only one career I have a passion for and that is Broadcast Meteorology.

The past couple weeks I have been working very hard with Mike on my on camera skills. I must say they are coming along nicely :) I have my tape being edited and I hope that my tape is good enough for somebody to say they want me as their broadcast meteorologist. I am currently looking at smaller markets around the area to hopefully begin my career once I graduate from UNC in May.

Oh, and by the way... As of last night I am now engaged to my beautiful girlfriend, now fiance, Krista!!! Wish us the best. I'll talk to you all later...
