Tough Duty

May 29, 2008

Coming from a guy whose knee and elbow surgeries reach double figures (this x-ray is from my 2004 broken elbow), I was interested to see one of the Valley’s top reporters, Melissa Blasius of Channel 12, sporting a cast on her left arm during a recent live report.

She slipped while trying to get into a live truck and broke her forearm.

While I’m sure typing is an issue for Melissa, the full-arm cast hasn’t detracted from her solid reporting, as she continues to handle the station’s top stories.

She says she’s switching to a brace soon.  Believe me, that’s a milestone she’s looking forward to and one that goes a long way in helping one handle the mental aspect of healing from an injury.

No need here for the standard show biz line:  “Break a leg.”  Sort of been there, done that.
