Do you prefer journalista or reporterista?
Everywhere I turn these days, it seems journalism is becoming the hottest fashion trend. Of course, for those of us in the industry, we already knew journalism was cutting edge and it was only a matter of time before the catwalks of Milan, Paris and New York City caught on.
It was not shocking to find out that the most fashion forward woman is also entering the broadcast journalism field. Who is this woman? None other than Barbie!!! This year Mattel rolled out its 125th career Barbie and she finally found her way to the anchor desk and delivers the savvy BNews.
The best part is, Barbie is in tune with the broadcast times and carries her own little P2 camera just like me! Sure, she might not be able to MPJ in her pink skirt suit…wait, I will take her with me and show her how a city girl makes it in the Texas Hill Country. I have shot in a pencil skirt and even hopped a fence with a tripod and all. And, since she showed up under the Christmas tree last year, we could drive to work together. Michael Fabac, want to offer Barbie a contract?
For those who subscribe to the words of Ron Burgundy “It is anchorman, NOT anchorlady,” don’t worry, you haven’t been edited out.
Maybe you are more into home decor. Picture this: You just got your jog on and take a shower. But, you need a little extra OOMPH to get you into reporting and coffee just isn’t getting it done. Well, it is time to take a look in the mirror to remind you who is making headlines.
This press conference mirror may only be 11 inches wide x 15 inches tall, but it will leave you feeling a lot bigger inside. Maybe you don’t want to star in your own little press conference and celebrity gossip has you wanting to dodge papparazzi. Yeah, celebrity gossip isn’t hard news, but reporters are like doctors, we have different specialties. Don’t worry, they make a mirror for that too.
If you happen to be married to someone in the industry or maybe you are a husband/wife anchor team, why not put these mirrors up side-by-side in the bathroom?
I dedicate this blog to Leila Rahimi…a true reporterista
