Working at FOX17 has been an adjustment in more ways than one. Typically at my old job in radio world we got holidays off. With the simple click of a button you can record an entire 5 hour show and be on your merry way.
In news, it doesn't exactly work like that. This Thanksgiving I was live on our morning show and I wanted to do something fun, and outside the box. That led me to the idea, what if I helped some random family get ready for Thanksgiving.
I put the call on social media and a surprising amount of people wrote in that they would have me at their home.
After chatting with one woman, Beth Covey, I knew she was the woman who I would be "helping" this turkey day. I use the word "helping" very loosely because I am an awful cook.
