Kim was on FOX 35 News Orlando Good Day this morning sharing central Florida staycation deals. The Orlando area was voted as the best place for a staycation by Wallet Hub this year. Makes sense since Orlando is also the most visited city in America, too.
First, a little behind-the-scenes information about appearing on FOX News. Then, the staycation deals Kim talked about.
When doing live TV, it’s always a very good thing to arrive early. Really early. So I got in around 7:45 for my 8:35 a.m. segment. You just never know what traffic is going to be like.
Walking into the studio, it’s a thrill to see the production area with so many monitors all broadcasting something different.
I chilled in the Green Room for a while. No, seriously, I chilled because TV studios are always so cold. Always.
When I was brought into the studio, a technician hooked up my mic pack (the lapel microphone) and I waited a few minutes while watching the segments being taped, from weather to news to the traffic report. It was a little odd to watch the traffic reports on the screen in the studio, talking about the bad traffic on I-4, when I had just passed the same mess on I-4 minutes ago.
I also watched the social media staffer endlessly click through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on a huge screen inside the studio looking for responses, tweets and likes. Yes, they do actually pay attention to that in real time! So send in those social media tweets, likes and comments.
Then it was time to sit on the couch next to John Brown and talk about staycation deals. FYI, John, Luanne Sorrell and Molly Rosenblatt are super nice personalities and welcomed me to the studio.
