Rise and Shine

In the world of morning news, one minute is actually a lot of time. I could tweet, read through a short script and get to Mark’s side of the studio in one minute. So, imagine what I can do with 30 minutes!

Last week we expanded our newscast to 4:30am for those super early risers. If you’re reading this post email me, I want to know who you are! With this expanded newscast comes an even earlier start for myself, 2:30am. I will try to keep the exclamation points in this to post to a minimum because as you can imagine getting up any earlier sounds impossible to me. But this morning, I did it! And it didn’t even require extra coffee.

Still, I stocked up over the weekend. I finally found a flavor for my Keurig that works for me. When it comes to coffee, I am super picky. I thought the Keurig would be my answer to enjoying the perfect cup every morning, wrong! I tried everything from Pumpkin Spice to Apple Pie and turns out good old Hazelnut makes the best cup of coffee.

Sorry, coffee easily distracts me. Anyway, during this 4:30am half hour we’re adding new, fresh content along with your hour by hour forecast. So, grab you coffee mug, pour some hazelnut or whatever you like and wake up with me. I don’t want to be the only one up.
