We had such a great time during our interview with Charlie Harger. Charlie is funny, personable, friendly, informed and put us at ease right away. Charlie wears many hats at KOMO radio: he is a news anchor, he writes and produces promotional messages for KOMO Newsradio and he host the in depth interview show "Beyond the Headlines". It was the in depth interview “Beyond the Headlines” show that we had been scheduled to be interviewed for.
We are newbies to radio interviews so Scott and I had butterflies in our stomachs when we were entering the Fisher Plaza Building home to KOMO News. Charlie gave us a tour of the KOMO TV News set, KOMO Online as well as all of the KOMO radio studios. Fun Fact..did you know that the Fisher Plaza building is the stand in used for "Seattle Grace" the hospital in Gray's Anatomy?
It was great to see the sets, the cameras the staff and the technical underpinnings up close and in person. Believe me there is a lot of technical staff time and technical knowledge that goes into reporting the news that comes into our homes every day.
It is an art to funnel, sift, clarify and clearly communicate the events in our world. Both Scott and I walked away with an new appreciation for those professionals who work to inform, enlighten, and educate us. What a valuable service they provide.
Thank you to KOMO and to Charlie Harger for allowing two homeowners from Capitol Hill to tell our story.
