I have just wrappd up my first night as Chuck’s intern. All I can say is WOW! This was so much more than I ever expected! I met so many people and did so many different things tonight. When I first arrived, I was told I was going to have to ride a segway AND be on tv manuevering it. If I wasn’t already nervous, that did it. As I went to step on the segway, Shaq like a genie (think Kazam) appeared out of no whereand gave me helpful hints to ride it. His advice really helped, so shoutout to Shaq! Shortly after, I met Ernie and he gave me helpful tips on how to succeed as Chuck’s intern. Next time I am here, I definitely will use those helpful hints! Thanks Ernie!
This is when my dream came true, I met Chuck! He welcomed me with open arms and gave me a huge hug! Charles is everything I expected and more. He was very kind and of course hilarious. We chatted for a few minutes and then we had to prep him for the show. Then Chuck and I taped a commercial for March Madness! That was unreal! That will probably go down as one of my favorite moments in my life.
Soon after, I met Kenny and he was hilarious from begining to end during our encounter. I was able to watch the taping of the show, and as some of you all saw I got to be apart of it! I was able to deliever Chuck his stats and engage with the rest of the guys, all while riding a segway! Who would have ever thought?
This has been an incredible experience! I know I keep saying this, but I am so grateful! I would like to say thank you to everyone at Turner Sports, without all of you this dream would have not been possible. I can’t believe this is only day one!
See you all next week,
My name is A.P. and I am the person who has been selected as Chuck’s intern! I just arrived at TNT studios! I can’t even believe I am here, this is really a dream come true. Everyone at Turner that I have met thus far is extremely welcoming and nice. I am very nervous, but more than anything I am grateful for this opportunity to be Chuck’s intern. I know there were many people who wanted this opportunity, so I will definitely represent for all the intern applicants. I am not quite sure what Chuck will have me doing, but I am ready! I have wanted to meet Charles since high school and my dream is coming true. As I sit here I have to pinch myself to remind me that this not a dream. This is my reality for the next couple of weeks! I am determined to do well and work hard under Sir Charles’ basketball reign.
