WCAX Hawk Migration Interview, 9/17/12

By Cat Viglienzoni — September 20, 2012

I’ve been on hiatus for a while — thanks in part to changes on our morning show (hired a new anchor and switched the format to a more standard two-anchor show), and a well-deserved vacation (it had been a while… as in, 9 months).

I went out to shoot this piece — the first of two about hawks — at the end of August, and it ran while I was on vacation in California. This piece was more timely — geared to the beginning of hawk migration season in Vermont as the fall approaches and temperatures begin to drop. It ran as the kicker at 5 a.m. and again at the end of the 6 a.m. hour in the Everything Animals segment of my show — and then again at 6 p.m. I’m told. This is the morning version.

I thought it turned out okay — my photographer Lance was great and the editing was awesome. I need to get a bit smoother with the live-to-tape interviews, but since this is the second one I’ve ever done, I think I did well considering.

I could not have asked for a more picturesque day to film — Mount Philo was SO beautiful that day. It was perfect.

In the next piece, Isis — a hawk — makes an appearance — and I got to hold that beautiful bird! It should air next month, so keep an eye out for it!
