August 2004 I was asked to be the fill-in anchor on News 3 This Morning on WSIL-TV. It was supposed to be a temporary gig. Mark Kiesling, who had anchored the show up until that point along with Lindy Thackston, was filling in on the 5 o'clock news because then anchor Angie Wyatt was going on maternity leave. About a month into the gig, it was announced Mark was staying on the 5 with Angie and I would be the permanent co-anchor with Lindy.
Back then, my wake up time was 3:15 a.m. I would jump in the shower, get dressed, and head to work. I'd get there by 4, eat my breakfast (back then it was Debbie Cakes and Mt. Dew), and help write scripts. The show was only on from 6 until 7.

Despite being sleep deprived, I do have a really good thing going with News 3 This Morning. I'm glad to be a part of this team and grateful to have been in the right place at the right time. Thanks again to all of you. Now enjoy a new round of bloopers with a few old favorites in there.
