We found some interesting thoughts that Americans have about their newspeople.
According to National Today.com.
18% of Americans think that it's a 'tough time' to be a newsperson right now
4% of Americans think their newsperson is 'sexy'
8% believe that newspeople wear pajama pants or sweats under the table
We were especially interested in that last one, so we wanted to know, do they really wear their pajamas to work? We decided to sneak into our own Jennifer Jones Lee's news booth to find out!
And we know that Handel doesn't like to hug ANYBODY...but Jen's determined to get her hug today!
