On the 30th, I worked my weekend GA shift. I had already been assigned to work the women’s basketball game later in the day but during my time in the morning, I wrote up a couple of briefs on a double-homicide in Moberly and a rape-arrest in Columbia with the guidance of Sky.
I called both police departments to get word or any further confirmation before writing up the briefs. It was kind of odd to make a shift from arrests and criminal investigations to women’s basketball in one day but I made it work and it was fun.
The women’s basketball game was awesome. It was a blast to cover and there were a bunch of storylines in the game so the story practically wrote itself. I live-tweeted the game and included some of those tweets into the story. I also made centerpiece again for a bit yesterday. Today (the 31st), it’s all football. But it was cool to be the centerpiece again after this game.
