How I Got the Job at Golf Channel (Part 3)
When you’re young, you think you know everything about anything.
When you grow up, you realize that things don’t work that way.
For the longest time, I thought I knew everything about everything.
And then, one day, I was asked a question I didn’t think I’d ever have to answer.
The question: “How did you become a TV anchor?”
I thought that was weird, because I had no idea what a TV host was.
I guess that’s how I got the job at GolfChannel.
You know, you get a job when someone says, “How do you do it?”
And that’s a pretty big job in the world of television, right?
You know what, I get it.
I’m not a genius.
But I guess it’s a fun job.
But if you get asked this question a lot, it’s not like you’ve seen a lot of TV before.
I’ve been doing this a long time.
I was the lead producer on The Big Bang Theory, I did the show’s second season and I was on the big hit reality show, So You Think You Can Dance.
I do have an advantage over most people in the business because I’ve done so many things.
I think that I’ve gotten to know a lot more people than most.
And it’s kind of like a lot.
And this job is a pretty good example of it.
But it’s also a lot to ask.
And I think it’s the most difficult job I’ve ever had.
And, you know, it doesn’t mean I’m doing it wrong.
I love this business.
I like being able to do things I’ve never done before.
So I’m going to keep doing it.
If people want to know more, well, that’s okay.
I can tell you what I do, and I can explain it to you in the best way I know how.
So here’s how it works.
I got a job at one of the biggest news networks on the planet.
I am the co-anchor.
I have this show, it airs on the world’s biggest network.
I get paid $60 million a year to do that job.
I also have a million dollars in my pocket.
I take my car and go to the beach.
I drive it.
And that makes me a lot wealthier.
It also makes me very comfortable, because when you’re the lead anchor, you have all the power.
You get to be in front of a camera all day long, and you get to do whatever you want.
So it’s my favorite job, but it’s really a difficult job.
When I get there, I don’t know if I’m a star, because there’s a lot going on.
I just know I’m in a position to be a good anchor.
And there’s no other job that is that.
The whole job is very important.
I need to be able to say what I want to say, and when I say what, people can’t hear me.
And you’ve got to have a very good sense of humor.
So, for example, when we go out and get dinner, I’ll say, “We’re going to go out to dinner,” and then I’ll get a table for all of our guests.
I don ‘t know if that’s the funniest thing you’ve ever said in your life.
I’ll just say, I’ve always had dinner with people that I really like, and we’ll get up and say it.
When we’re at a restaurant, I know I can get a lot done in an hour.
And even if it’s just two minutes, I have a lot I can say.
But, you never know, I could say something that would make people laugh, even if they don’t like it.
It might not work.
But when I get to a restaurant and people start eating, I say, Hey, we’re all here to have dinner.
And everybody’s getting a lot out of it, even when they don ‘ t like it, because they’re getting their dinner.
I mean, I’m the one that’s getting the job done.
I should be able just to do what I love, and if they like it and if it makes them laugh, great.
But then it’s your job to make sure it’s all good.
So that’s what I think I do well.
And the people that come on my show are very loyal to me.
I say things to them that they wouldn’t normally say, but I’m very protective of them.
So if I can help them understand how I think, I think they’ll appreciate it.
They can just be like, Oh, wow, that was great.
They’re just like, Wow, thank you so much.
And they know that I’m looking out for them.
And some of the things that I do are kind of fun.
But the thing
