IN will have results reports at some point, too. They are up for Regionals, as are Regionals vids.
I'm looking forward to Hawayek/Baker's performance!
and... World Peace!

And looking forward to Keegan too!
Just tuned in to Icenetwork's coverage of Sectionals and came across commentary with Tonia K and Sarah Hughes. I know the two of them aren't professional broadcasters but it's kind of painful to listen to. Tonia at least has clear diction and clearly her Icenetwork experience helps but she needs some more practice interviewing and keeping the flow of the conversation going.
I was listening to Sarah H before I looked at the video and if she wants to go into broadcasting even if it's just color commentary she really needs to take some voice lessons. Without looking at the video and just listening to the audio she was slurring her words to such an extent that at first I wondered why in the world they got someone who was drunk. Then I brought the video screen forward and realized that it was Sarah.
