A local newscaster and reporter shared what her hectic (very early) morning routine looks like.
Lauren Zenzie is a mother of two who works at FOX61 News in Hartford, Conn. She took a look at how she was just a small part of her day. There was no shortage of multitasking and prioritizing.
Zenzie woke up at 2:00 a.m. and said her alarm “sounds different” now that she has a baby and a toddler. After driving to work, she joked that she was going to do her hair and makeup.
“That’s probably the biggest myth about local news. Almost all of us reporters and presenters do our hair and makeup,” she said.
While preparing, he typically reviews scripts, makes edits, and works with producers to revise pronunciations.
Zenzie explained that heavier makeup is a requirement to appear on screen, so getting ready can be a chore.
“The TV preparation process is like a construction project, it’s complicated along the way, but the end result speaks for itself,” he said.
Afterward, she curled her hair with a flat iron, dressed, and headed to the newsroom. It was as if the reporter had a full day’s work before he started the job.
