Retired Hamilton County Commissioner Curtis Adams has a new gig in the Scenic City. He's the host of a half-hour radio show called, "Getting to Know You." (And yes, the Julie Andrews song is the theme song!)
I had the pleasure of appearing on his show. We recorded it Tuesday afternoon and it could air this weekend.
I wasn't sure what to expect going in (who on Earth would want to hear about me for a half-hour?) but the experience definitely earned a "10" on the Amy-O-Meter.
I just realized it's been so long since I last wrote an "Amy-O-Meter" blog I should quickly explain what it means... When I was the weekend meteorologist here at WDEF News12, I would rank the next day's weather forecast on the "Amy-O-Meter." I randomly assigned rankings (1-10) on whether or not I liked the weather. Well, now that I've passed the "weekend weather" torch to Megan, I rank pretty much anything else on my good ole "Amy-O-Meter."
I've known the Commissioner for a while. I've interviewed him plenty of times during my (pretty much*) eight year tenure in Chattanooga.
(*I technically lived in Huntington, WV for one year-- and loved it. The people were great!-- But since I spent some weekends visiting Chattanooga it counts.)
I digress... Even though I'd never been on the "A" side of Q&As with Commissioner Adams, I had a blast. The WDYN staff made this TV girl feel totally comfortable in a radio booth, too. Commissioner Adams spent the first part of his career in the newspaper business here in Chattanooga... So we talked a lot about the news media and the influx of women in reporting positions. I thought it was a really interesting chat... I hope you do, too!
