Our Behind the Scenes Week continues with a look at Nancy Naeve's day, anchoring the Morning News.
Nancy's day starts by taking care of her four dogs at home. It's quite the process getting them all outside and given a snack, before putting some of them back in bed so she can get ready for work.
While Nancy is getting ready she's also watching ABC News so she can get an idea of what the big stories are that have unfolded overnight.
Nancy says that really from the time she gets up, she is on the go. She says a lot goes on in just a few short hours before the show starts at 5:00am. When she gets to work she goes through scripts and helps write parts of the show.
Around 4:45am you can usually find Nancy making a run for the dressing room to finish getting ready for the show. It's also fairly amusing to watch the dance of Shawn and Nancy in the morning. Typically, because time goes by so quickly, they are both coming down to the studio around the same time, sometimes in a sprint. Both of them need to get their microphones and IFBs on. Then they need to sit down and get ready for the show to start. Generally speaking this is happening when the show open is about to roll. But like a couple of pros they are always ready to go at 5:00am.
From there Nancy says the show can be hectic but it's also a lot of fun. During the show, and mostly during Shawn's weather forecasts, she is checking twitter for other news and talking with Erin about things that are coming up in the show.
When the show ends at 7:00am Nancy needs to get news cut-ins ready which air 4 times between 7:00am and 9:00am.
Nancy says being a part of this Morning Show is the most fun she's had in her 21 years at KSFY. She says getting up in the morning is never easy, but she looks forward to seeing her news family every day.
