Day 25: Working on a Saturday

Posted: August 9, 2013 in OJT Days: the Adventures of a Journalist-in-Training

That Saturday, May 18th, was my first time to work on a Saturday. Well, technically I wasn’t really in the field at that time, so I guess it was okay. Every Saturday, Sir Mike takes a lot of load. Other than his regular beats—MMDA, Makati, Taguig and SPD—he also covers Rizal, Eastern Metro Manila and also NCRPO during Saturdays, so I guess the monitoring would help him at the very least. I started monitoring the news since 6 or 7 in the morning and ended at 5 in the afternoon. There were only a few notable things that happened that day. One was the fire in Marikina City that took place at 6:44 a.m. and second was the news about International Museum Day. Working on a Saturday was really not much of a hassle, although it was kind of uncomfortable to have to listen to nothing but AM radio the entire day. Still, I got a couple of hours off of my remaining time, so it was worth it.
