WCAX New Year’s Eve Liveshot, 12/31/2011

Hello first blog post of the new year! Appropriately, it’s my liveshot covering the New Year’s Eve festivities in downtown Burlington. I was filling in as a reporter that day. I led the top of the A block, but our start was delayed by CBS sports (curses!!).

It wasn’t bad. It wasn’t awesome either. I could hear myself in my IFB, which reporters will tell you is the most disconcerting thing ever. Basically, you’re hearing what’s on air, but delayed by a second or so. So it’s trying to talk while hearing yourself talking delayed in your ear. Next time, I’m taking the IFB out when that happens.

But no drunken revelers crashed my liveshot (fortunately, I was spared going live at 11pm, when such a thing is more likely to happen), and I didn’t forget everything and stop talking. I only fumbled really once at the end, when I said “than next year’s” instead of “in next year’s”.

All in all though, not a bad first liveshot.
