A few blogs ago, I talked about juggling chainsaws inside the newsroom. A writing consultant said that is what a producer takes care of when she’s getting ready for hew news show. She’s juggling live reports on stories that are being updated in the field and over the news wires. She’s also coordinating new video from reporters, new scripts for her anchors and new information from the assignment desk. Those are her chainsaws. It looks damn cool on TV when she can hit those elements during a live broadcast. Each one also has the potential of causing some major damage to the show if the producer screws them up.
Now, I’m exploring a new career opportunity with A Really Goode Job. I’m looking forward to writing/blogging/shooting stories about the wine country experience in Sonoma County.
Check out this video reference from Ann Osterberg in Sacramento. We both work at the NBC station. In addition to working in the news business, we also enjoy wine, food and entertaining conversations.
I love our grill! June has been a great month to toss meat, seafood and veggies over the flames.
I love the communal nature of grilling. As a married couple, we share prep duties in the kitchen. Together, we brainstorm herb and spice rubs for our proteins and vegetables. Over the weekend, I used salt, pepper and Spice Islands’ Chipotle Chile Seasoning on our shrimp kabobs.
At parties, people gravitate towards the food. Many offer to help with seasoning, boiling and other food duties. At a BBQ at our buddy’s house in Oakland, I helped boil and mix up the German potato salad. I also loved the hickory-smoked salmon at this party. Our host, Scott, didn’t sprinkle salt or pepper on the fish. He said all he need was the salmon fat and the smoke. Yum! That smoke cooked and seasoned the fish beautifully.
Over the weekend, I sent in my resume for Murphy-Goode’sWine Country Lifestyle Correspondent position.
So, you’ve seen why I think I’d rock this dream job.
Now, I want to share some of my professional and personal references for this job in Sonoma County.
This is from Andrea James in Seattle, Washington. We graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

We found a gas station/rest stop about 8 miles away from the Avenal State Prison. This was a Mexican-style trip-tip with rice & beans. The hearty meat hit the spot after driving on I-5 for a few hours.
