Good Morning

It's just past 7:30 a.m. and I've survived doing my first day of traffic reporting "until further notice" on WTSP-TV's morning news show. We still have the local news inserts into the CBS Early Show to do so maybe I shouldn't announce my survival just yet but so far no major mishaps.

I can report that I got out of bed on time, which is the first of the many potential horrors of the morning.

Doing the show itself is easier now than it was last year at this time. Then we had traffic reports -- some maybe only ten seconds long -- at the beginning and end of each news block.

Now I appear only four times an hour. That makes life a lot easier. I'm not getting paid by my screen time so I'm happy to go on as often or as little as they want.
