I like having the first take on hit stories, I like challenging my self and just being on TV and I love to interview people and also write.
Well I dislike that I might have to work on the weekends and the pay is okay and I guess I don’t like always having to be on top of things like stories or writing them but that I really like doing that anyways so I really don’t have any dislikes for this job
