We had a good time last night. A good turnout, several of my former co-workers and other friends stopped by for the first (and last here) Tucker Family Christmas/Bon Voyage Party.
I was going to take photos and post them here but not knowing how management might react to some of the reporters, anchors and photographers associating with me, caused me to keep the camera on the shelf. Silly, I know. But last week a friend posted an invitation at the station and I’m told it was promptly taken down.
Bearded Joe and his lovely wife were here. Several others I hadn’t seen in months. We laughed and talked about days and nights of newsrooms past.
I’m finding it isn’t necessarily a good idea for someone going to work for a tv station to hang out with people who work in television. Not just last night, but several times in the past month I’ve talked with news folks who say “why do you want to get back in tv?” or “I’ve got to get out”.
