Jeannie Powers - LI NEWS RADIO 103.9 Entertainment Report 1.16.15

Hey everyone!!

Well a week ago I made my Entertainment Reporter debut on LI News Radio 103.9 FM and even though I have been on morning shows & podcasts and even on LI News Radio before, I had never been so nervous in my life. I literally had sweat underneath my eyes. I thought I was going to shit my pants all over the studio. Jay Oliver had me practicing breathing excercises seconds before I went on and for those of you who listened you might have heard the quiver in my voice. At the end of my first segment, I let out the biggest sigh of relief. I dont remember anything except my first sentence...Hey Gleek Fans!! 

I know it is not easy to get up at 7am. I can tell you I certainly have a hard time getting there by 6:30am. For my second day at the studio I left my report at home, I was sick and had to wing it but I didn't do too bad. (I did email it to myself but I couldn't get a signal at the airport!!)

For those of you across the country & around the world & my parents who can't wake up early enough to listen to my report I will be posting it here on my Funtasian page every week after the show. I covered the Oscar & Razzie nominations and the Golden Globe awards. 

Next more of this award crap and back to entertainment news and pop culture from around Long Island, the region and the nation. 

I promise to start blogging again. I have been such a slacker. Maybe I will VLOG my next day in the studio with Jay and George for shits and giggles. George and I have a great time behind the scenes making fun of Jay. The Bobby Flay look alike...

One more thing...A big thank you to Nardy Honda Smithtown for sponsoring my entertainment report. hehehe. They stand the test of time...
