It has been my experience people (I love you all to death) will say just about anything that comes to mind when they see a television reporter or anchor in person. Sometimes I walk away thinking “I can’t believe they just said that to me.” I think it’s part of people allowing you to come into their homes every night. They feel like they know you personally and I think that’s a good thing. But sometimes some of the comments leave me scratching my head. Here are some I’ve heard over the years!
How in the hell did you get on tv?
You people certainly aren’t fair and balanced!
You look really big on tv, I thought you’d be at least 7 feet tall and 500 pounds!
You are short in person!
You speak so well!
Is that your real voice?
You look a whole lot better in person!
Who does your make up because you look dead on tv?
TV doesn’t do you any justice!
Who are you again and what channel are you on because I don’t watch the news!
