I laced up some ice skates and got to skating over the weekend with some of the crew from WAVY for the 10th Anniversary opening of MacArthur on Ice in Norfolk at the MacArthur Shopping Center. It’s part of their Winter Carnival this holiday season…good times!
I started ice skating when I was four and although it had been YEARS, okay at least a decade, since I last took to the ice…I didn’t fall and even managed to do a (very) small spin! 🙂
Here I am with Anita Blanton, taking a skating selfie….and below with my THRS Co-Host Chris Reckling!
I recently hosted the “Face of Fox 43” special announcement show at my station. Every year WAVY’s sister station Fox 43 selects a “Face of Fox” who will represent the Fox affiliate hosting community events, tv segments and be the social media extraordinare for the station!
My “The Hampton Roads Show” co-host joined me in doing the prime time special, where Tyrus Jones, was named the new “Face of Fox.”
Here’s a sassy shot of me…
A couple candids from the show….

Tomorrow will be my first day on air as a (new) Host of The Hampton Roads Show at WAVY TV 10 in the Portsmouth/Norfolk/Virginia Beach market! Yep, I have moved on from Miami. This is truly a unique and awesome opportunity to host a dynamic daily lifestyle and entertainment show! I’m really excited to be part of something like this and although moving and transitions can be tough, sometime we just have to change it up and push ourselves on to the “next.”
Think Today Show/Live with Kelly and Michael…hot topics, makeovers, giveaways, cooking, comedians, live bands/artists, local interviews, etc… I do have a co-host in Chris Reckling, so it’s not completely my own show, but pretty close. I am excited for the opportunity because these kind of hosts jobs don’t happen everyday! Plus, it’s kind of like something I’ve always dreamed of doing, and I told myself I would only go back to TV full time to host my own show…dreams do come true!
The hour-long show airs everyday at 11am on the NBC affiliate in the Hampton Roads market, so if you’re in the area tune in…otherwise you can visit the website and see clips from the show…
Ariane Aramburo is the outgoing host, as she returns to her home state of Alaska, to take a Morning Anchor position there. I wish her the best of luck!!! Above is a little snapshot of us as she “passes the torch,” from one AA to another… 😉
