Sampson Nanton, please stick to reporting. You do a much better job there than at reading the news. We caught your story on the Labour Day celebrations on Thursday night and we must say we were quite pleased.
Although we don't usually agree with stand-ups being done at the beginning of stories, yours worked because it set the stage and the tone for what was to come in the rest of the story. We got the distinct impression that you planned what you said and practiced with your cameraman in front of the statue of Buzz Butler.
And you used a lapel mic so we didn't see the distracting CNC mic flag.

But you kinda killed our enthusiasm with the second stand-up in the rain with the green raincoat, but we're willing to forgive you.
Overall good job. Keep it up.
