An anecdote from days of my working in the news biz. Originally published August 27, 2016. Please enjoy!
The police report came through to the news assignment desk at WMXT.
“Mike Bradley, 38, found dead in Lake Quivira due to boating accident.”
The news sent producer Amy and associate producer Angie, into a stunned silence. Mike Bradley was their Assignment Editor! And he had a boat at Lake Quivira!
“Angie, you don’t suppose …”
“Lemme get this. I’ll call the house. ”
Angie dialed the phone. Mike Bradley’s voice answered. “This is Mike.”
Angie sighed. “Oh, Mike! I’m SO happy to hear your voice!”
Mike chuckled, “I’m so happy that you thought of me as still being 38 years old!”
