Chris in Action

Chris has been a bit of a crazy person at work these past few months!

In March, the whole JWC media team went to Grafenwoer, Germany for three whole weeks for a combined training exercise between the US Armed Forces and NATO. They were pretty much stuck on the base and only had one day off the entire 21 days including weekends. They came home for five days, then left again for a week and a half to attend the National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB) in Las Vegas. He extended his trip for a few days to hang out with my family and see his bffs but then he was right back at the grindstone. Barely a week after he got home from the States, the JWC began another one of it’s 2 week training sessions. Luckily, it was in town this time, but Chris was working from 7 in the morning to 8 at night every day for the entire 2 weeks. Again, no weekends.

He’s had a bit of an easier schedule these last 2 weeks (during which his crew moved from their old studio into their brand spankin’ new high tech studio) and he’ll have a bit of a break for another two…and then he’s off to Poland to film a promo and then back to Oberammergau, Germany again before we finally head home to the States for a nice relaxing month of home leave.

Crazy man!

Here are some sweet photos of Chris and the WNT news crew in action!

Oberammergau x 3

Chelsea: “Chris, tell me something about your 3 work trips to Oberammergau, Germany so far for the blog.”

Chris: “It’s really small.”

Chelsea: “Mmm…how about something more detailed.”

Chris: “It’s quaint.”

Chelsea: “Annnd….?”

Chris: “Annnd, it’s beautiful? The food at the Maxbrau is good.”

Chelsea: “Something more along the lines of why you go and what you do while you are there.”

Chris: “I go there to teach people stuff.”


That’s about as good as we’re going to get for now people ;)
