Rainy Parade Coverage:
Friday night was a night to remember at Meridian Dairy Days. I've anchored a lot of parades in my years here at Channel 7, but never in the pouring rain! Who would have thought we'd have such a storm in the middle of June?
The entire KTVB crew decided to make the best of it! Our coverage went on... despite the rain.
You know what? I was really surprised by the turnout... it was one of the best parades I've been a part of! Thanks to the people of Meridian who turned out in droves with rain coats, umbrellas and blankets. It certainly was wet, but a lot of fun for all of us.
Here's a picture of the "Mighty 7" production truck... and several of our co-workers were inside hard at work- directing the rainy parade coverage!
We were all soaking wet at the end of the 90 minute parade... good thing I had my trusty KTVB rain jacket in the car. I looked like a wet rat, so I borrowed the hat from our camera man Paul... thanks Paul!
See how glamorous TV news really is????
