NCAA basketball has a way of messing with your newscasts. You may have to start some late or, as was the case with our noon and 11 p.m. news, lose the broadcast altogether.

Now how does that affect me, you wonder? Well, it means we don’t have anything new from the night for our morning audience. These are two different audiences for the most part… I doubt many of our viewers who watch the morning news stay up for the 11 p.m or the other way around. Thus any new reporter piece for 11 is new for our viewers in the morning.

But since there was no 11 p.m. Thursday, I wanted to make sure we still had some sort of new content for the morning, so I went out and did a reporter piece that I could front live on my show. Hence this piece on a conference aiming to teach parents/teachers how to start conversations about financial planning with minors and thus better prepare them for when they hit the responsibilities that come with getting out of school.

Not a groundbreaking piece, but hopefully something that at least encouraged parents or teachers to incorporate some life money lessons into their conversations or curriculum.

In any case, I fronted the piece live at 5:30 a.m. and 6 a.m., plus a cutdown VO/SOT version for an 8:25 cut-in (which I didn’t catch on tape, unfortunately). And then it ran again in the 5 p.m. news today too. And I did the morning webcast, but didn’t get a copy of that either. So just the reporter piece for today!
