Ted Hall is a silly man. Yes, he’s smart and has good journalistic sense. But he is also quietly hilarious, irreverent, and self deprecating. He can quote ‘Anchorman’ in a way that would make Ron Burgundy swell with pride.
Ted is not a scene or show stealer. Most of the time he hangs back, letting others have the spotlight, but every once in a while he’ll bring down the house with a ripping one-liner.
A few years ago the station had a contest on Facebook where viewers could vote for their favorite video from members of the morning team. My husband, then Chief Photographer Kenny Hamilton, was assigned to do Ted’s video. The video could be anything, as long as it was funny. We brain stormed at home and came up with an idea. It was ridiculous, far fetched, and completely stupid. Ted was all in.
I loved Ted before this video. I love him more because he went through with it. He won the contest.
In case you haven’t heard, ‘He’s kind of a big deal.’
