As we count down the RMIA finalists, the folks at HAVENc@st made us wonder; how do people get their start in the world of sportscasting? Maybe they were living-room announcers as kids, doing play-by-play from the sofa during Monday night football. Or maybe they were inspired by their college team and wrangled their way into a studio.
For our holiday greeting this year we asked ourselves, "Who really embodies the spirit of the season?" The man in the red suit may instantly come to mind. But we think it is children. No matter how you celebrate in the month of December, chances are the children of your community are going to play a role. That's why we invited Mr. Hamel's class at Shorewood Hills Elementary to create hi-tech holiday greetings based on their artwork and poetry.
Here in the U.S., the holiday season is in full swing and 2011 is just days away. So maybe that's why I waxed nostalgic when I received this request last Wednesday from a senior lecturer in London.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
