"On Air 101"


It never gets old - teaching others the tricks of your trade and drawing out the very best of them on camera. Only half of these college students want to be "on air", but they all want to work in TV, so they need to understand the challenges of every job in the newsroom. "The more you know, the readier you are" - it's a good motto for starting out in any career field - so you can shine when opportunities suddenly arise. Thank you to the "U" for having me!

Empowering Others


When it comes naturally, you don't expect an award, and that's how it is for philanthropists, Heide & Jose Dans, when they chair some of South Florida's largest charity events and pull in record donations. These two Miami natives received the "2024 Trish and Dan Bell Community Empowerment Award" at this year's gala for Branches - a non-profit with 4 locations in SFL that works 1-on-1 with students and families toward financial security. It was an honor to rave about Heide & Jose in their award video along with the former Univision President, Claudia Puig, and UM's Exec. VP & Chief of Staff, Rudy Fernandez - both longtime friends of this power couple. Heide & Jose are all about faith, family and fun - our community is better because of all you do & give!

How do you look natural reading from a prompter? If your first TV job is halfway across the country, how do you get to know a new town and its sports teams fast enough to report on it? How do you negotiate a contract when you have no leverage? These were just some of the questions from the TV Performance class at the University of Miami when I got to be the guest lecturer for a day. It's so important to get on-air experience and see if it comes naturally or if it causes tremendous anxiety.

The TV news industry is so exciting, but it also requires tremendous sacrifice to move where the jobs are, work crazy, long shifts and holidays, and drop everything when huge news breaks. Kudos to UM for teaching students the big picture - I'll be back to check on your progress!
