Fill-in anchoring at News 4
On Sunday I fill-in anchored at News 4 for the first time! I anchored Weekend WakeUp! from 6 am to 7:30 am.
At my first TV job in Northern Maine, I was morning anchor for just under a year. At WAGM-TV, I produced my whole newscast. In small markets like Presque Isle, Maine (market 205) it is very common to have one person crews who fulfill multiple roles. Buffalo is a mid-size market (market 53) so newsrooms in this market are much more well equipped with plenty of staff members.
On Sunday I worked closely with the morning producer to get the show on the air. Before the show I spend time reading scripts, looking up information for stories, writing teases, and making any phone calls as needed for breaking news. I posted a couple of clips of the show on my Facebook news page, http://www.facebook.com/angelacontv
