Devon Walsh has been in the Television Business for nearly twenty years. Recently voted “Best News Anchor 2017” in Alabama by the Associated Press, Devon took some time to answer questions about her job and winning the “Best News Anchor” award for the third time.
When asked “what is the best part of your job,” here is what Devon had to say:
“Hands down, the best part of my job is being able to help people. I always felt like from the very beginning that this job really provided a public service. Whether we’re providing information or telling someone’s story. The fact that people entrust us every single day, to get out whatever message they want to get out, is amazing. That they’ll sit down with you and tell you their story, I love being able to do that and to help them in some way. I have enjoyed that since day one. Here almost twenty years later, that is still so satisfying to me to be trusted with someone’s personal story and be able to share that with everyone.”
