I called my old friend Tricia Sloma the other day...and like usual, I got her answering machine.
I get it. She's busy...in fact, she's always busy and it always takes 2 or 3 times for me to get through. After all, she's an Emmy winning reporter. Not only that, she was awarded the prestigious Indiana Journalist of the Year from the Society of Professional Journalists for a series she did on school bus safety. Because of that, she helped to changed some Indiana laws on school bus stop safety.
But, we didn't talk about that stuff too much...
This was really just a conversation between two old friends. I happened to call her while she was going through a few boxes of things she brought home from the office because they're doing a major remodeling at WNDU-TV, where she's worked for 27 years.
So, you get to be a fly on the wall of this talk...this is the real, behind-the-scenes Tricia Sloma, or as she's known affectionately by her co-workers, "Mama Sloma"...my broadcast partner from 1994-2010. Those were fun times...we had a good time catching up.
Lightning in a bottle.
