Nerve Center

Inside the newsroom, an intern asked what type of sandwich I would like from Togos. The assignment desk reassigned him from answering phones to making sure the rest of the staff had enough fuel to power through our wall-to-wall coverage of the Roseville Galleria Fire.

“No thank you,” I said. I didn’t mean to wave him away but I was in the middle of logging an interview with the Roseville Mayor, uploading viewer photos on the fire and keeping tabs on where our reporters and cameras were stationed for the biggest news story of the week. So far.

He had his assignment and I had mine. Both of us didn’t want to disappoint the newsroom.

As I worked into my 9th hour at the station, I wasn’t ready to give up my focus on all the cameras trained on that dark plume of smoke from a fire that was burning all day.
