Submitted by Intern Victoria: Anything can happen when the Preston & Steve show are on-air. As one of their interns, I help them with capturing all the action. And we’ll do anything to get the perfect shot. I’ve found myself in some pretty interesting situations that made me have a near death experience, but hey, got to do whatever it takes, right? Here are 5 times I nearly died this year as an intern for your amusement.
Chili Chili nearly did me Dirty Dirty
The gang decided to honor the Birds Super Bowl win in a super-size kind of way. Tre Sullivan stopped by during Camp Out for Hunger to help carry out one of the messiest games in P&S history. 2 big bowls of chili was all it took to nearly wipe me out. It was worth the massive red sauce stain on my shirt because I got the victory video. Thank you, Captain Mcilwain!
The day Gritty stopped by was a day to remember alright. No one knew what to expect. Then we see this mass of orange fur toggling down the hallway. My mistake was saying hello when his back to me. It all happened so quickly, but Gritty’s ass knocked me on my own. Literally.
Death by marshmallows.
Another Camp Out 2018 moment, was when we had the guy that can catch marshmallows from crazy angles. A note to my future self: Don’t throw marshmallows when it freezing outside. They will turn into rocks and leave bruises if they hit you. Or just get out of the way!
Kathy will do anything for Bucks Co…even stop traffic!
Okay, so this one isn’t about me per say, BUT I did bear witness to this. If you know P&S, you know that Bucks Co vs. Delco is more than just a friendly competition around these necks of the woods. Day 1, I rode along in Kathy’s car. Kathy and Casey had to drive to a specific spot and ask strangers for help. She proved as reigning champion that you gotta risk it for the biscuit by hopping out of the car while at a red light to ask for directions. I didn’t actually think she’d do that…until she did.
Excuse me, I’ll take your picture for you.
Anyone who has come out to meet the gang knows interns will help take pictures after the show and at live broadcasts. Being only 5ft tall, I’m not the easiest to spot. Some might think my voice is a figment of their imagination. The taller fans will turn so sharply, I’ll get whacked. It’s not so easy being on the other end of the camera.
I’m a current junior broadcasting major at Temple University and am WHIP Temple Radio’s Entertainment Director. My dream job is to be an E! News anchor and report live from red carpet events. When I’m not at a radio station, I’m watching reruns of Friends.
