  • I also work at a news station as a producer, and was wondering if you have any tips. I am expecting in December and would like to breastfeed. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hello! I watch your news channel all the time. I tend to catch Gretchen and Mark more than the evening news, though. It was fun seeing someone I am familiar with on this website!

  • Hi NewsAnchorMom. Welcome to Work it, Mom! I can honestly say you're the first news anchor I've ever met. How fun! It must take a lot of guts to work in front of a camera. Hope you'll share some of your experiences with us!
