There is a first time for everything, and sometimes doing something that isn’t well-known or what you are accustomed to doing, if my experience on KATU-TV is any indication, just jump in, say yes and give it your best shot. When producer Katie Arthur reached out this past summer to ask if I wanted to be a guest on a new show airing on Portland’s KATU, I was trepidatious (more because of my reluctance to get in front of the camera than anything else). However, once she introduced the concept of the new show Afternoon Live hosted by Tra’Renee Chambers, I recognized that she was offering something I didn’t want to refuse.
As it was my first time on live television, I didn’t know what to expect; however, all nerves were quickly erased as KATU’s staff, crew and fellow guests were inviting, warm and helpful in walking me through the process. Have a look at the segment below that aired live on KATU-TV yesterday.
