I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. I'm spending Saturday and Sunday as a mentor at the APTRA Academy News Anchor and Reporter training camp.
It's a cool thing that I volunteer to help with each year (well, two so far).
Folks from anywhere can pay to spend the weekend with professional journalists and get experience, advice, and just a chance to really network with the people like me who put the news on TV every day.
You might think I'm doing it just for the beer, but that's not true.
I'm doing it because I know what's it's like to need career advice. I know what it's like to want to get into news when my competition for work is fresh out of school and a decade younger than me. I do it because I know what it's like to just need a little bit more experience to get my foot in the door.
A couple of beers at the end of the day with my fellow journalists?
Shoot, that was a bonus.
