I feel like I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time. The beginning of Charlotte Today.
I’ve wanted to host a show like this for years. It’s why I got into TV. But I started on the news path and stayed there for 17 years. I can hardly believe this day has come.
Everyone keeps asking me how I feel. Am I excited? Am I ready? Am I nervous? Yes, yes, yes. I’m nervous because I want this to be good. I want this to be good for YOU. I hate to admit this, but early in my career it was all about ME. I was ambitious and wanted to be a super-stahhhh (think Molly Shannon’s Mary Katherine Gallagher). But that changed. I grew up. And as I grew up, I began to understand anchoring the news was an honor and a privilege. I needed every single one of those years at the news desk to get me ready for this moment. I can’t thank you enough for allowing me into your home every morning (not literally, of course. That would be creepy.). I hope you’ll invite me back now with Charlotte Today.
I want you to be a part of this process. Let me know what you want to see on this show. It’s not about me. It’s about you.
