I am an intern for WLTZ First News.
This week, I got hands on and got to write the kicker for the show. The kicker is a news story that comes at the end of the show. It is a short entertainment piece to get the audience laughing. I found a story about naming a cockroach after your “love bug” for Valentine’s Day. I wrote the story. It had to be under 30 seconds. My story aired on the midday news Wednesday. The most exciting part was when Ricki, the anchor for the midday news, asked me to get on TV and talk about my story.
