First Person: Trump
Then, it was time to jump in a news car and head to the arena in Wilkes-Barre Township. I was meeting photographer Dave, who was already there in one of our microwave trucks. The first glitch: Police weren't happy to see us, but they grudgingly allowed us a couple of spaces in the vast emptiness of the arena parking lot.
As it turns out, that first police glitch was the only one of the day. The morning broadcast went smoothly. Next stop was a trip to a mini mart for a sandwich and a visit to the porcelain conveniences, not necessarily in that order. I also stopped by Staples for some AAA batteries.
It's easier to hand off a story when you know it will be done well by the staffers who follow you.
Thanks to the arena security staff, who were very accommodating when it came to parking and other matters. We communicated our needs. They did their best to make sure we got what we required without getting in anyone's way.
