Earlier this week, I had the privilege of meeting with our Summer Conference morning show hosts. For two straight days we wrestled with serious and life changing topics like “is it too much to have both a wizard and a Viking in the show?” and, “is the guy really a superstar in India?” It was hard work yet we pushed through the sharp labor pains.
That is really an unfair analogy because I’m sure that our meeting was a lot harder than giving birth. I mean, the meeting lasted almost two whole days. Women are never in labor that long. And most of the time, they get to lie down. I had to stand part of the time. Obviously my illustration breaks down on some level, but you get the idea. It was really hard work.
What I am trying to say is that eleven other men and I gave birth to a child this week and we named her “The Bucket O Fun Morning Show”. Over the next few weeks, we will care for her on this blog. You will see some of the discussion leading up to the time she takes her first steps this summer. All across the country, thousands of high school students will watch her blossom into a young woman. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, I ask you, how many villages does it take to raise a morning show? I’d say at least eight.
