New WBKR Intern Jordan Roos Becomes Hello Kitty at International Bar-B-Q Festival [Video]

You can't haze people in college.  But we can sure do it here at WBKR!  And that's exactly what Jaclyn and I did to our brand new intern, Jordan Roos, a senior at Brescia University.  His first day on the job was last Friday, which just so happened to be the first day of the International Bar-B-Q Festival here in Owensboro.  Naturally, we invited Jordan along for a crash course in live, on-location broadcasting.  Well, watch what happened when we passed Paula Martin's Paintopia booth.  She was painting faces and we knew we had the perfect 6'4" blank canvas for her!

So, of course, while visiting the Precious Blood cooking team at the International BBQ Festival, this topic came up and ended with me "baby birding" Chad!
