Tropical Storm Isaac is brewing in the gulf threatening to become a hurricane and barrel right through New Orleans and straight up to Monroe. It is terrifying for many people, but as a journalist with my first big girl reporter job, I am excited to be covering the event. I don’t want anything bad to happen to anyone or to any businesses or homes, but it is events like these that are a reminder at how helpful the media can be.
Media outlets are being used as mouth pieces for local leaders and organizations that are trying to help people, which is a great thing. We’ll have to see what happens, but I intend to go all in with our Isaac coverage and stay at the station working until the sun comes up in clear skies and everything is settled down.
