A day in the life of a morning news anchor


Since Mandy McQueen’s last day at WDHN was this week, for this segment of “A Day in the Life”, we thought it would be interesting to show you glimpse of what it’s like as a morning news anchor.

So here’s a peek at some behind the scenes moments from this week on Wake Up Wiregrass.

Before the sun comes up and while most people are still sleeping, the day of a morning news anchor begins.

So if you aspire to work at a television station in one of the smallest news markets in the nation, get ready to wear multiple hats because oftentimes on-camera personalities at smaller stations not only anchor, but they report….and produce…..and write, video, interview, research, edit….you get the picture.

Although the news industry typically doesn’t offer banker’s hours, delivering the latest current events to our community is always rewarding. 

if you can look past the  strict deadlines, can juggle many tasks efficiently , love to meet new people…. and enjoy a fast past environment, then this is the job for you.
