My team and I won an award from the Society for Professional Journalists for a show I hosted. Best Newscast!
I wasn’t there for the awarding, because it landed on the same night as a show I was hosting. But my producer went and was totally sideswiped by the honor! I had assumed the competition was too stiff, and sent him with an acceptance speech that was actually a Mussolini speech, with the name of our show replacing the word “Italy.” Fortunately, Victor is as well-spoken as he is a good producer.
