It's now official! This small town guy is off to St. Paul later this summer to go to the Republican National Convention, working for the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer! I just got the final word today, and that's how it'll be! And how about that for a first PAID job in the industry?!
This is really a dream come true in some small way for me. The NewsHour has been the place I go to get news for years now, since I've always thought it to be the most even-handed newscast of any of them. CNN is my second, but that's neither here nor there. I'll be doing all sorts of things there; I really can't yet outline exactly how my time will be spent, but it's going to be great to get my name out there, and the addition of this to my resume I think will be nothing short of invaluable.
I'm so excited for this right now, it's amazing. I'll be hearing more about this over the next few weeks, so I'll be around of that you can be sure.
