While most of you guys were enjoying some much needed R&R over the summer months, we were hard at work developing stories to bring to you over the next school year. Yep – you read that correctly; despite being off the air, summers are actually when most of us at Channel One are the busiest.
A major highlight of my summer was when I embarked on a trip to the Baltic Region to cover military exercises with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). From watching Howitzers fire off rounds that traveled at five football fields per second, to flying full-speed in a Medevac Chopper, I got an up-close and rare glimpse at the military might of NATO. I can’t wait to bring that story to you guys later this year.
Aside from work, I went on a road trip through Southern Iceland. There’s no possible way for me to convey how stunning Iceland is – but some of my pics did it justice (I hope). Check them out below in the slideshow below.
