Christina Kleehammer – WTVM – When Knowing is Fun

I really enjoyed writing this article today.

My last blog post was about the difficult stories, but this one is about the ones that peeked our curiosity and make us laugh.

The article I shared above is about a restaurant in Americus that’s hosting a screening of “GROW!”, a documentary about Georgia’s local, organic farming culture.  I didn’t realize we have such a thriving young farming community in our state, and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about it while simultaneously informing the WTVM web viewers as well.  I hope a lot of people are able to attend the event.  It’s a little far away, but I may even try to go as well.  Sounds cool!

When it comes to good news, as with bad, you never know what’s going to happen next.  Today, everyone was sitting at their desks, working quietly in the newsroom, when Kelsey (Assignment Editor) announced that we have to see this video of Richard Simmons promoting Auburn University Aviation Program, which was just posted to YouTube that moment. Next thing we know, the whole newsroom is cracking-up!  I suggested Austin (6 o’clock News Producer) use it as the kicker for his show, which he was thrilled to do. (Good kickers can be difficult to come by sometimes.)

We were definitely laughing, but Auburn fans can be the ones to decide whether or not the viral video counts as good news or bad.  What do you think?
