If you have called me, texted me, emailed me or generally tried to spend time with me over the past two weeks, please know I haven't just been ignoring you.
Twice a year we have our on-air fundraising campaign at the station. This is the most exciting and exhausting time of my job. In my time as a journalist I have covered disasters, been on the scene until 2am, been stuck in 100+ temps, pouring rain and sometimes freezing cold. But none of that is nearly as difficult or emotionally draining as being on-air during the fundraising campaign.
All that to say, I am now rejoining the land of the living and promise to be a good friend again. At least until the Spring fundraising campaign.
