We got a new digital camera for Christmas, so I thought I'd try adding a picture to my blog.
Of course, this is going to take some assistance from our very tech-savvy 11pm Senior Producer, Aaron Weiss.
If you watch the late news very often, you'll hear Joe and I mention Aaron.
He's the guy in "our ears".
We wear little earpieces called IFB's that allow us to hear the producer in the control room.
Aaron is the magic behind the Late News. He writes most of it, decides what order to arrange stories, and comes up with wonderful little nuggets we often run in the segment after sports.
I like to think of him as our "Gelman" (the producer from "Regis and Kelly").
In addition to being an outstanding producer, Aaron is also a tech-genius, having worked at Microsoft.
Anyway, for me...instead of "Ask Jeeves"... it's "Ask Aaron".
Whenever I need help with the web, I ask Aaron.
This is my first attempt at adding a picture to my blog.
So, it seems fitting it's a picture from the "First Run"... my family and I ran on New Year's Eve in downtown Portland.
This is one of my New Year's Resolutions...besides remembering more people's birthdays more often... I'll try to chime in here in this forum more often...and
maybe even with pictures.
