It's Allison with you here today. And today has kind of been an easy day, so not much to tell you about today. Except that it's Dean Richards' birthday today! Happy birthday Dean : ) Morgan is here with me too, and if you watched the show in the 7 o'clock hour you can see us HERE singing to Dean in Greek (I'm in the blue dress, Tania in the white blouse and Morgan is in the gray sweater).
I'm actually going to tell you about the Evan Lysacek Day that I got to go to. So on Thursday Terry, one of the awesome morning show producers, asked me if I wanted to go out with Ana to Naperville for the Evan Lysacek day and of course I said yes! So I got there in the morning (7 a.m.) and basically I got real practise experience of being a producer for her "Around Town" segment. I had to make sure the high school kids were organized so Ana would be ready to go if they happened to need her early. That turned out to be surprisingly easy lol I thought the kids were going to be trying to do something funny on-air but they were well-behaved. Someone told me that when Evan walked in, it was probably going to be chaotic. But when he did finally walk in, everything was calm and cool. We had him to interview after ABC. He was so nice, very humble and VERY tan. He brought with him his dance partner from Dancing With the Stars and she was nice too. Evan had his medal around his neck and it was so cool to see an actual Olympic gold medal in person. That was a pretty awesome day, and if you saw the segment you know it went off without a hitch! I think I kind of like this producing thing.
Well that's it for today. We have many more really cool guests coming on the show so I'm looking forward to that. And for the Sox and Cubs opening game day, we'll be out there too and hopefully we can get a video up of that. And don't forget to leave comments or questions if there is anything you want to know.
