As a top ten finalist, I have been invited back on Wednesday and Thursday of this week for Traffic Reporter School. Friday, I will go before the judges once again, this time with an actual chroma (green) wall. After the Friday Auditions, the judges will narrow the finalists down to four. If I happen to be one of the four, they will shoot a profile of me at work and at home this weekend and Monday. Then the four finalists will do live on-air traffic reports as a public audition Tuesday-Friday ( Dec.11-14). This is where YOU will come in IF I make the top four… The public will vote for their favorite reporter Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (Dec. 14-16) on www.clickondetroit.com.
Monday, December 17th the final four will return for the announcement live on-air. I thought I would prepare everyone in the event I make the top four. I am truly not expecting anything because a lot of these finalists are already professionals in the field and it is truly INCREDIBLE that I have made it this far out of 332 people!!! It is extremely rare to start your broadcasting career in a top ten television market (Detroit). I am so proud to have had this opportunity and if I don't move on any further I am 100% ok with it. I fully believe in the saying "everything happens for a reason." Whatever cards are dealt to me, I know there is a reason for it and I am so blessed to have this experience. Keep your fingers crossed, and I will keep you updated via my blog! If I do make it... I will need all the help I can get with votes.
Much love to you all,
