WTNH (Connecticut) has new staffer on the morning show and you can bet she's working like a dog.
Mainly because, she is a dog.
Nell, a 9-year-old Cockapoo, will be joining the Good Morning Connecticut family on set every morning. While she is new to live television, she is no stranger to the newsroom. Nell has been pulled out of bed at 2 a.m. by Anchor Ali Reed to accompany her to work.
Now Nell is moving in front of the camera as the station's Anchor Dog.
While being Connecticut’s first news dog will be a career high for Nell, she has had many other interesting life experiences.
Nell spoke to WTNH's website about her life so far:
My mom, Ali Reed, adopted me when I was 7 weeks old. At the time she was living in Boston, so I thought I was going to be a Boston dog, which I was pretty excited about. But, low and behold, three days later we were on a plane to Anchorage, Alaska. Let’s just say it is not warm there. But I quickly learned how fun snow is to play in and how great of friends Huskies make. At the time, my mom was working for a news station there and she would bring me in quite often. That’s how I got my paws wet in the news business (the Iditarod was my favorite). I was hooked from there.
It might be the first time you can call the Anchor a bitch without being called into the News Director's office.
