I love my co-anchors. They really are like family. I was trying to find the perfect gift when I was inspired by two people who work in morning TV and always look like they’re having a lot of fun. After I saw Hoda & Kathie Lee reveal their new mugs.. with their mugs on them.. the light bulb went off!
I started searching for caricature and graphic artists in our area who could do the job. That’s when I discovered the super talented Neal Jones. I literally sent him an iPhone pic and voila he sketched and then inked this awesome caricature of the weekend morning crew. I love the detail.. everything from Chuck’s OU mug to Richard’s mic clip.
In return… I got some great gifts. Chuck.. who is worried I may be rushed to the ER because I have glass in my ear.. got me a bullet proof smarphone case.
Richard looking ahead to 2013 got us matching team shirts for our future ping pong tourney at NBC4. Don’t mess with Team Rangie! He also got me a nice cuff and jewelry box– which is great considering I’m still using a shoe box for my baubles.
Earlier in the week.. we got the crew together and did a yummy McDonald’s breakfast! Nothing says I appreciate you more than egg mcmuffins, hashbrowns and hot coffee! In a newsroom where everyone has an opinion on everything.. one thing we can agree on is our love for food. It’s been an awesome year and I’m so grateful for my colleagues and friends. Happy Holidays from all of us at NBC4.
