The year was 2008.

Milwaukee (Wisconsin) City & County officials finally picked their Christmas tree from a local family.  The tree would be decorated & on display downtown for all to see!

It was the day of the annual tree-picking and removal, a flatbed all ready to go.  What happened next was a first, and I was live on the air!  I didn’t realize my reaction would be so funny to folks, but it was!  My former station reruns this video each year, on the day the new

tree gets removed…

People always ask me to tell them what some of my most memorable stories are… this is one of them!  Enjoy!
