Posted by NBC Washington on Wednesday, April 1, 2015
March is Women’s History Month and the women of News4 paid tribute to some of the most important ladies in their lives. In a News4 Special “From Our Mothers, To Our Mothers” we share some of the best memories and life lessons we got from mom. The response so far has been overwhelming. Thanks to all who watched, cried and laughed with all of us. Please enjoy the show below with hilarious and heart warming moments from me, Doreen, Wendy, Veronica, Barbara, Eun and Pat.
@OhMyGOFF I lost my mom 4yrs ago; watching WHMonth with tears in my eyes – thanks

Please join me and Eun Yang this Saturday as we commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a 30 minute Special on NBC4. We have so many incredible Asian Americans who are making an impact where we live now. Their stories will amaze you and inspire. The Special show airs Saturday May 10th at 7:30PM. Special thanks to our sponsors Allstate Insurance and McDonald’s.
Some history.. the Library of Congress chose May for this month “to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.” Eun and I headed over to the beautiful residence of the Japanese Ambassador to film the show. Shout out to our producer Jason Gittlen and photographer Chester Panzer.
Some of the stories you’ll see will range from an Oakton woman with a real rags to riches story. Rosemary Tran Lauer has a true story of triumph over war, welfare and cancer after fleeing her native Vietnam and arriving in America with nothing. Eun shows us a local group that helps young people find their way in what can be a very complicated world. Just a couple of the many great stories we can’t wait to share. Won’t you join us!

SATURDAY MAY 10TH

We’ll see you then.. Angie & Eun!
This is my third Expo and so much fun! I got to meet many new people while hanging out with my favorite colleagues! This free event is really awesome not it’s not just a time to have fun.. It’s also a great way to get in control of your tests and screenings! Oh it’s also a good reason to eat donuts for breakfast! You can then go to the Expo and work it all off!
It is great working for a place that really embraces diversity. NBC4 teamed up with McDonald’s Corporation to present the Asia and Pacific Islander Heritage Month reception in Studio A. Asian-American leaders in our community were recognized at the event and a $5,000 check was given to the Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center.

There was great company, Chinese food and beautiful live music. We also celebrated the success of our recent 30 minute special which told some incredible stories of people making a difference here and across the world. It airs again this Sunday May 26th at 11:30 on NBC4.
With three weeks left before I’m scheduled to pop I was a little nervous about jumping on stage for a fashion show. However, I knew it would be a forgiving crowd because the Tickled Pink Mother-Daughter Tea is all about being a momma! The Lilly Pulitzer fashion show is one of my favorite events. It benefits Children’s Hospital and always draws the best crowd. For the third year in a row we walked the catwalk. Adora even waved to the crowd and did a twirl at the end of the runway! Thank you to everyone who came out to support! Photos by imijphoto.com and Kipp Burgoyne
It was more like a lunch.. but that’s how us at News4 Today like to celebrate special moments. It was very sweet to have my dear friend Eun organize a little get together to toast baby Bob. The crew met up at Cactus Cantina for some guac, chips, fajitas and fun. We even had a couple of Bob’s future “boys” drop in. Thank you to everyone for all the support.. I’m gonna miss you guys while on maternity leave. I’d like to say I’m not gonna miss the hours I’ll likely still be up during those ungodly hours on feeding duty!
Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite authors. As a child I found he made reading fun. I remember reading his books and poems by Shel Silverstein cover to cover. It brought so much joy and laughter into my life. That’s why I love Read Across America Day so much. Students celebrate the art of reading while remembering one of literature’s greats.

Today the News4 Today Team visited different schools in Prince George’s county. As someone who spent some of my childhood years living in Fort Washington I was so happy to return to the area to read Miss Lacey Greene’s 1st graders at J Frank Dent Elementary. We chose which Dr. Seuss book to read based off their applause. “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” brought the house down. So there we had it.. Christmas in March!
