So this is a pretty late post too, with no good reason other than I was busy posting the backlog of older work to the blog.

In any case, this piece I did first on February 4 for the Saturday 6 p.m./11 p.m. news, but since Monday rolled around and we have to use the weekend content, I ended up running it and fronting it live on my show in the 5 a.m. hour, which is always fun.

I did a second version in the 6 a.m. hour, where we typically don’t run any packages that aren’t new — so I fronted a cutdown version of the piece instead.

Really, it was more of a health PSA than anything, since norovirus isn’t particularly serious, even if it is rather unpleasant to have and contagious. I made sure to reiterate that in the piece, that way it wouldn’t sound like we were sensationalizing something that isn’t usually life-threatening.

I was really lucky to run into the norovirus patient — we’d gone to the clinic expecting just to interview the doctor — although I didn’t think I’d ever come across a name that was harder to say than mine!
