I have always wore a tie on-air when doing the weather, but since I was filling in for Bill Kelly and he does the Friday Casual Forecast, I decided to open it up to Facebook. I asked everyone on my station Facebook page and every single person to loosen up a little and lose the tie. So I did for the 11PM main forecast. It felt a little awkward like forgetting to wear my watch or forgetting my phone. I still switched out the pocket square for a white one... Always have to be prepared.
Speaking of being prepared... I got burnt on the computer today. I was trying to maximize my show and I crashed the system and hadn't saved in about fifteen minutes. Luckily I remembered all the new additions I had and I was able to get back up to speed pretty quickly, but what a pain. I was afraid I hadn't saved for nearly an hour. Keep Calm and Save Often. Have a good one!
