HOLLYWOOD, Cali. – This is how TV news works.
We're covering the Detroit Youth Choir as they compete in the semifinals on "America's Got Talent."
Kimberly Gill, photographer Norm Fairhurst and I arrived at Metro Airport at around 4:30 a.m. We flew six and a half hours to Burbank and arrived in Hollywood with only about 60 minutes to shoot video, write and edit our stories for the 4, 5, and 6 p.m. shows.
That meant we had to turn one of our hotel rooms into a makeshift studio for interviews and edit bay to get the final product on air.
Watch the video above to see the makeshift studio.
