My cell phone alarm was set for 3:40 am.
My night stand alarm was set for 3:50am, but I was up at 3:30am. You can call it nerves or excitement, either way I was not missing my opportunity to do my TV News Segment this morning.
WGXA TV Macon is 1 hour and 36 minutes away, so we were on the road pretty early, because my call time was 6:20am. We were welcomed with smiling faces as they quickly prepped me for my segment, clipped my mic, and told me where I would be standing.
This is it! I am about to go LIVE. There are no retakes. One shot is all you’ve got!
3 Great Products to Help You Keep Your Car Clean
Spring Break for us was last week and Summer vacation is almost here. That means road trips in and out of the city. With 3 children, it’s easy for your car to get dirty if you:
- Don’t set rules for the children
- Let them eat in the car
- Don’t give the children alternatives to purposely dirtying the car
Diono USA is known for creating car seats, storage containers & travel accessories that are consistently given high marks by experts and families worldwide.
They’ve won numerous awards for their innovation, safety and design. Here are three of the travel accessories I had the pleasure of presenting on camera.
Travel Pal $10.60: Designed to keep books and toys neat and organized. It has a deep cargo bin for toys and lots of pockets for smaller things, too. It also has insulated drink holders and the entire cargo area is waterproof – just in case. Travel Pal fits between two child car seats and it’s big enough to hold everything for both children.
Pop Up Car Garbage Can $5: This collapsible storage bin pops open when needed for those extra toys or for trash. The drawstring top keeps items secure. Water resistant fabric. Collapses flat for storage and travel. 7” W x 8” H. Takes Bag It disposable trash bags (not included).
Stuff ‘n Scuff: This features washable, waterproof fabric to keep mud and dirt off the back of your vehicle’s seat. The pop open design maintains its shape providing full seat protection. The large cargo pocket holds everything. Fastens easily around any headrest and the adjustable lower tab secures it in place. Folds for easy storage in seat back pocket.
How I Felt After My Segment!
I felt like a rock star! I believe I knocked the segment out of the park, especially being that I didn’t have the products in hand. Can I tell you a little secret? The products were supposed to be shipped to the station but no one in the studio could find them!
Thanks to quick thinking from the staff, we grabbed some images of the products and completed the segment!
Honestly, I would love to do this again. So I am putting this in the universe! I want more opportunities to showcase more products and spread the word about things that make life easier on TV!
So, now for the big question . . . How did I do?
