For the “lordy, lordy, look who’s 40” episode of On The Record, Tyler and Matt sit down and chat with TMJ4 anchor and reporter Bridget Shanahan. An Illinois native, Shanahan has worked in a number of different places during her career, including Idaho, Illinois, and Vermont, and has now been in Wisconsin—and Milwaukee—for the past year. The hosts talk to her about her many moves, her thoughts on Milwaukee, waking up at three in the morning, the role of social media in TV news, and the current state of TV news in general. Oh, and why news anchors always seem to be holding iPads for some reason.

As always, this episode is brought to you by our friends at Ale Asylum. Music in this episode comes courtesy of Ladders (“Patience I Once Knew,” “Constant Window”). Subscribe to On The Record via iTunes or Stitcher (for free!)
