Beckford made her debut this morning, reporting live on Hurricane Sandy from Long Beach. Morning anchor Michael Gargiulo introduced her during the 7amET hour, saying, “What a debut you’re making, Checky.”
“Not the most flattering appearance, guys,” Beckford said. “The wind slapping me in my face, the rain coming down hard. It’s extremely hard to stand here now as each hour goes by.”
Beckford comes from KOVR in Sacramento, where it is 61 degrees and sunny today.
