10 Questions is a fun online offering we publish every week featuring a top newsmaker or community member. It's a way you can get to know them better.
This week we are profiling a familiar face here at ABC ACTION NEWS: our very own Bill Logan!
One of my favorite questions in this questionnaire is number 8. Who are the three people you would like to have dinner with?
His answer will give you great insight on the type of person he is-a dedicated husband and father.
A quality, I admire very much. I look forward to you getting to know the Bill we know.
1. What is your all time favorite movie or song?
Ben Folds “The Luckiest”
When a song starts with the line “I don’t get many things right the first time. In fact, I am told that a lot…” and just gets better, it has to be MY number one.
2. Do you have a Smartphone? If so, what's your favorite app?
Yes (two… a blackberry and a droid). ABC Action News… and the Tampa Bay Rays
3. Who do you count as your mentor(s)?
A sportscaster in Baltimore named Randy Blair… who unfortunately, passed away shortly after I started working as a reporter. He told me (while I was an intern in the sports department at WJZ) that I could go anywhere I wanted in this business. Who knew that would be Tampa?
4. What was your very first job?
Washing dishes and helping steam crabs at Obrycki’s Crab House and Restaurant in Baltimore
5. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I would love to be more patient. Make that a LOT more patient.
6. What do you consider your greatest success?
Erin and Caitlin (our daughters)
7. Tell us something about you most people don’t know?
I am going back-to-school to get my meteorology degree and AMS certification. It is a long (longer than I thought) process, but I am learning a LOT about the weather and the science behind it. A lot of the stuff I’m learning will never come into play in the ABC AccuWeather Center, but the ability to expand my base of knowledge is priceless!
8. If you could have dinner with any three people, living or dead, who would they be?
My wife and daughters. Seems we never have enough time to get together any more. This dinner would be a good excuse for “just the four of us.”
9. What is in your fridge right now?
Kitchen fridge: leftovers and condiments.
Garage fridge: beer, water, chicken that has been marinating and ready to grill!
Back porch fridge: more beer!
10. If you could have a different career, other then what you’re doing now, what would it be?
I’ve tried Public Relations (both agency work and at Walt Disney World), selling stuff on TV (HSN) and food service (I went to Domino’s to work on my delivery), but I keep coming back to this…At this point, I can’t imagine doing anything else!
We hope you have enjoyed this week's profile.
