Red Wings going homeJune 9th, 2009 at 10:55 pm by woodtv under Sports
It’s always so exciting being in the newsroom when news is breaking, elections are ending, storms are brewing, or big games are being played. Tonight, is one of those nights with the Red Wings trying to cinch the Stanley Cup Finals.
I of course want my hometown team to win. And it would have been nice to see that happen this evening, BUT…
If the truth be known, I love the suspense of taking it to the very end. It’s no small matter that the game is playing out on our channel, WOOD-TV-8/NBC. That certainly helps deliver a great audience to our newscast, thank you very much. And now the Wings are taking it to game 7 and home to Detroit… we get another good night of television entertainment, another good night of ratings as viewers tune in to watch, and another suspenseful nail-biter.
It’s fun. And I’ll be watching again Friday night while helping to write and edit the news, anchoring and getting the score fed through my earpiece while I’m on the air.
Go Wings… see you Friday night at 8pm doing what you do best…WINNING!
