Recently we assigned beats at work, and I was psyched to get the one I really wanted — the science beat. (And the books beat, but there’s less going on there.)

So today I got to debut my first science reporter piece, on my show, live. This one is on a trio of Essex High students who are in the running to have their experiment they designed be performed on the International Space Station.

I think I’m getting better at livesiding — I livesided twice, once in middle (headlines) block of the 5 a.m. hour and once in the A block of the 6 a.m. And it was good having some new content for Mondays, which are always tougher to fill because our weekend crew is smaller. I hope I can continue to do so!

Of course, since I was already dressed up and made up, I did the webcast again too. Note that the graphics system is working again and I’m back at the greenwall…

You can see I did a cutdown version of my Essex piece — it always helps fill content in later shows like the noon or five. Those students are getting a lot of airtime! Good luck to them!
