A couple of weeks ago, I hit something of a career milestone, reaching the nine-year mark since my career in the news business first started.
I was a wide-eyed 21-year-old who’d just landed the luckiest gig of his life, working in his hometown for a major media organization just one year out of college and with no real experience to speak of.
Granted, I was moderating comments on stories (which is basically wading through the internet’s knee-deep cesspool), but it was a start. It’s taken me a lot of places, including sunny South Florida, as you already know.
But this week’s assignment was something I never expected I’d be doing. There’s video after the jump…
BEHOLD! I eat Burger King in the name of journalism.
I had a bit of fun doing this, although it’s obviously never going to be a full-time career move. My palette isn’t refined enough to be an actual food critic.
I AM, however, hoping my coworkers will get behind the idea of making this a regularly scheduled segment.
