New threads, new palmarés

I’m trying out a new look. What do you think?

Proudly wearing my new socks, which my friend, the thoughtful Dr. Ann Pegoraro sent me. (I just sent her socks, too, so that’s our thing now.) These are Baie d’Hudson socks, and they are fancy.

I doubt there’s ever been that much color between my shoes and slacks.

The sports crew is goofing off in the studio for my amusement:

And then getting down to business:

We had to record some extra promos tonight, since a bunch of our news people, have recently been nominated for awards from the Society of Professional Journalists. Michael Dugan did the promos, bragging on Andrew Lamparski’s general news nomination for a story about prescription drug abuse and Meredith Struewing’s feature news nomination for a local circus school. They’re both sophomores, so we’re going to get plenty more stories from them in the next few years.

But who’s counting?

Long day. Full of day things, and then evening things. Thankfully, Griffin and Meredith were riding the sports desk tonight:

Meredith is awesome and does it all, and she pulled double duty on the talk show.

She also anchored the news Tuesday night. Told ya, she is awesome:

Here’s another show they produced Tuesday night, Meredith was probably working in the control room somewhere:

They shot several more shows tonight, they’ll be online tomorrow and through the weekend.

And so, at 8 p.m. tonight, I got to go home. It was 9:15 p.m. Monday, 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, 5:00 p.m. Wednesday and tomorrow, promptly, at 5 p.m. on Friday. I’ve literally done this all day!

I used kilometers because it sounds better

A 12-hour day ended with a 90-minute television business meeting, but it started with this television interview.

It was a long day, but there will be a longer one tomorrow.

This is a video about Saturday’s bike ride, the first one of the year. (I certainly was going slow enough to make one…)

Keeping my Game of Thrones Shakespeare theme alive …

I probably can’t do much better than that.

A few quick links

Shows the students did last night:

Another television show thing:

It’s going to snow this weekend. Because that’s what March is for, I guess.

To help you ease into your weekend …

Here are three sports programs the sports crew produced in the studio last night. This first one is the weekly talk show, four people sitting around talking about sports:

This is a highlight show, which features various Indiana sports and the crew is showing you the highlights and telling what’s been going on with each program:

And this is a condensed highlight show, for those people who are interested in IU sports, but can’t watch a full-length program:

You are too busy and you should watch more programming, really. They are having a lot of fun making it:

I was back in the studio this morning for a take on the old Dating Game show. That should be out early next week.

A game I’ve been running on Twitter has concluded:

What do you think? Did the voters get it right? What should have made the final round? Even if you have an entirely different set of songs, at least one of these is now stuck in your head. You are, of course, welcome for that.
