Here is day three (Tuesday), in sports at WYMT.

Day Three: 3:04pm - Working on game dubs for coaches and viewers, and putting together the 6pm and the 11pm because I have to shoot another game tonight (which I ended up shooting two games over at Perry Central) .

4:28PM - Working on my scripts for the 6pm, and of course, you'll hear from the Cats tonight as they play Georgia on ESPN @ 9pm

5:03pm - Posting several articles to the website.

5:23pm - Working on my last story for the six, which reminds me, UPike and Cumberlands play each other Thurs. night at 8pm on

6:21pm - Got on set to do sports in the 6pm newscast.

6:28pm - Walked off set and headed over to Perry Central with Maisie to shoot the second half of the boys game between #2 Perry Central and Leslie Co..  and the girls game between #4 Letcher Central and #1 Perry Central.

9:10pm - After the games were over, I made it back to the station to cut my highlights of the two games, along with going over what Maisie shot with her. She is improving a lot faster than I expected.

10:10pm - Started working on editing the highlights for the #1 Kentucky / Georgia game.

10:55pm - The 11pm sportscast was completed and we were going on the air late at 11:13pm.

12:15am - After the newscast was over, I had to tape morning sports for the Wednesday morning show, which begins at 5am.

1am - Put video up on the web from the 11pm sportscasts.

1:25am - Saved all the good video from the two games that I shot earlier in the day.

2:30am - Headed downstairs to the production office, so I could work on this week's montage, (music video) for Prep Zone on Thursday nights, and for Sports Overtime.

5am - Finished the montage and posted it to my facebook page, my website, and the facebook pages of the players who were in the montage. (I played four sports in high school and never had any media coverage when I played. I wish I could go back and see what I looked like when I played HS and college sports. So, I give the kids the opportunity to have video of themselves when they play. If I have them on by facebook page and they make the video, I make it a point to post it to their wall. That way, they will always have something to look back at whenever they feel.) 

5:20am - Finishing up this entry for the blog, pre-producing some stuff for tomorrow's six because tomorrow will be another long and busy day.

Tune in tomorrow night for Day Four of the blog to find out why.
