For my journalism class this week, our professor assigned us our very first day-of-air piece. After we sent him an email, we literally had until 10pm that night to find a story, shoot it, write it, edit it, and get it on the web. The exercise's purpose was to show us what it's like to be an actual reporter with quick deadlines. Because I'm on call/duty all weekend (so I won't be able to leave Laf late Sunday night), I knew my only day to produce a package was Friday. So, here you have it. I finished the exercise and even had 4 1/2 hours to spare. Hope you enjoy my spooktacular story!
