End of Week 7

November 11

It is hard to imagine that I’ve been working with this show for seven weeks now. Our Thursday and Friday shows this week were packed with many guests.

Yesterday, Monica was off so Shannon Murphy filled in. She was nervous prior to the show, but she did a great job. In the kitchen was Mazur’sRestaurant. The chicken scampi that was cooked was delicious. Mr. Mazur brought his wife, mother, and his mother’s friend to watch the show. He was a really nice guy, and he did a great job in front of the camera. I could tell he was thankful for the opportunity to cook on the show.

We had our weekly Ralphie Report from 97BHT’s Ralphie Aversa. Dave and Shannon interviewed guests about a celebrity champagne brunch and Alzheimer awareness month in two of the segments.

A big name was on the show today! Does Jay McCarroll ring a bell? He was the winner of Project Runway Season 1. He has had a lot of success after winning the show, and he currently has his own clothing and accessories line. The scarf that he had Shannon try on was really nice and I’m thinking about ordering it for my mom for Christmas.

On today’s show, Dave was live on the red carpet at an event in Scranton. Downtown Justin Brown joined him to talk about the weekend’s events.

In addition to Chef Amanda cooking and J.W. Colwell’s movie report, we had a local band perform. They were a big band and brought a lot of people with them. The studio was extremely packed, and I was constantly running to get drinks for our guests. When guests first arrive at the studio, I always offer them a water or coffee. Most guests say no, but some like a little water before going on the show. Today, almost every band member wanted coffee. Even the people who came with them to watch wanted coffee! I guess you can say I got my exercise today and made some great coffee.

The past seven weeks have been great. I really like this internship a lot. Everyone who works here is really nice, and I get to meet so many great people every day. I have about four weeks left.
