Happy Birthday Andrea

Happy Birthday Andrea Roane.. one of my dearest friends in this world. We had an enchanting afternoon at Cafe Milano. The celebration was hosted by Gwen Russell and Franco Nuschese, the owner of the landmark of a restaurant. In the left wing guests which ranged from co-workers, best friends and community leaders raised a glass and shared Andrea “moments” over an amazing 5 course meal. Thanks to Monika Samtani for capturing the awesome moments below.. yes it appears like a game of “Where’s Andrea” but she’s the birthday girl so she’s allowed to be in all the pictures!

Lights, Camera, Annebeth!

Tune in Tuesday July 19th to see Annebeth Heller help me out as a guest traffic reporter on the Morning Show! Annebeth pronounced Anna-beth is an upcoming 5th grader at Holton Arms School. 

Not only did Annebeth master Washington traffic she helped our Howard Bernstein deliver the weather report. We even had her wrap up the show at the end with the team.  Following the show Annebeth kicked it on the radio with Kirk McEwen and Mike O’Meara.  All agreed she’s ready for the big lights! GO PANTHERS!

Strawberries, babies and one brave pig!

The largest strawberry festival in Northern Virgnia draws families to the fields. Great Country Farms hosted hayrides to the u-pick strawberry fields that were first come first serve.

The farm holds the Strawberry Jubilee in Bluemont Virginia every year. Loved running into colleague Jessica Doyle and her daughter who tore it up in the pie eating contest! One of my favorite parts.. the adorable Diaper Derby! Some of the babies didn’t get too far… and Adora is still mad mommy didn’t let her enter. There’s always next year 😉 Read more

WUSA9's Kristin Fisher Marries

Congrats are in order for WUSA9’s Kristin Fisher. Our former morning show reporter (she’s moved to the day shift …sniff ) married her true love Walker over the weekend. The gorgeous ceremony was held at The Church of the Holy City in DC… and a rockin’ reception with an extraordinary view followed at the Hay-Adams Hotel. Highlights included a jaw-dropping beautiful bridal gown, a sweetly executed toast by the bride’s sister Kara and out-of-this world party favors: moon pies and freeze-dried ice cream. Hey what do you expect from a bride who is the daughter of two NASA astronauts. It was great to catch up with some 9NEWS colleagues too.. Jessica Doyle, Andrea Roane and Larry Lewis. I think it’s fair to say from all of us.. best and bright wishes to the newlyweds!
