I didn't think this would be a special Friday of any sort. I just got up, threw on a DPNews shirt, and got to 1st period a bit late to take a math test.
I get to 2nd period and get asked by DPNews Campus anchor, Lindsey Fischer, if I can anchor Campus News with her! I've filled in for campus, sports, and world news this year, and love being a sub, so with little hesitation, I said yes. I was fooling around with my hat backwards and asked people in a frat bro voice if I should do the show as my alter ego "Judah BROdy" today. The only real approval I need is from my producer Elizabeth and all she said was "It sounds like you've already made up your mind."
I joined Lindsey who was putting some finishing touches on the script, and I always like to spice them up so I reworked the intro, and added a good amount of awkward humor in the show, because it's a Friday and why not! The ending "Wait, your name is spelled with an e?" is based of a real moment that morning. We headed into the studio, did a run-through, I ate a quesadilla, and then did the show, which I thought was pretty great.
I had a lot of fun, I also forgot that I scheduled my Spongebob segment to go on Friday, so I went on the show twice!
Always more to come,
