I work in live television in the mornings, therefore, I am privy to the craziness that goes on … especially while we’re broadcasting! Recently, I started a new blog called “So Nice To Media!” which is based on that craziness.
I brought a sample that fits the prompt, actually (so I went a few words over, sue me). Each entry is short, therefore, readable. It is typed in SCRIPT form as opposed to prosaic with the distinctive typeface of the old-fashioned typewriter.
Our Managing Editor is Rochelle “Wish-I-Could-Write-A-Script-So-Kent-Will-Stop-Bugging-Me-About-It” Fields.
Our Camera Operator is Rich Voza (thanks, Rich, this is a cool photo!)
Please stand-by …

DIRECTOR [to producer; bottle in hand]: How many aspirins you want?
PRODUCER [head in hands]: Thirty’s a good start …
