When Armed Woman Entered WSOC, Anchor Blair Miller Went Into Reporter Mode

When an armed woman entered the WSOC building last week, anchor Blair Miller quickly shifted from panic mode to reporter mode. Finding himself in the middle of a breaking news story, Miller, who has been with WSOC since 2002, understood the need to communicate updates to both his family and viewers in the Charlotte area.

He wrote about his experience in a recent post on the WSOC website…

Quickly, I started getting phone calls, e-mails, tweets, Facebook messages, texts from friends and realized, we weren’t the only ones who knew about this. I went from being a potential witness to danger, to thinking, “We need to communicate with the world, people need to know what’s going on, we walked off set and didn’t explain to anyone why we went to black, we didn’t have time.” Police made us leave immediately, some people in other parts of the building didn’t even know we needed to evacuate yet. Collectively, a group of us started asking police about the latest, as if in breaking news mode.
