Moultrie - How young were you when you decided what you wanted to do in life? Some south Georgia fifth graders are looking over the possibilities of all sorts of careers.
We found two aspiring broadcasters and put them to the test. The two 11-year-olds hold the microphone and say to the camera, "Hi, I'm Payne Newsome and I'm Saige Frazier. Today, we are at career day with the fifth graders."
Payne and Saige are anchors for J. M. Odom Elementary School in Colquitt County.
Their career day mission is to interview out in the field for WALB. Payne asks student, Dwayne Todd, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Dwayne answers, "A pilot." Payne adds, "That's an interesting career, can you tell us what type of pilot you want to be?" Dwayne says, "I don't know." Payne laughs, "He doesn't know."
While Payne is trying to get the scoop, Saige is taking notes and then we flipped duties. Saige asks friend, Miranda Fletcher, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Miranda answers, "Right now, I want to be a veterinarian because I just really love pets."
So far so good, but these co-anchors don't always see eye to eye. In fact, they got in a minor disagreement during our shoot. Payne tells Saige, "You are, like, the boss." Saige says sternly, "Yeah, cause I have to write all of your scripts." Luckily, they made up.
When asked if Payne is a celebrity at school, he said no. His girl co-anchor says otherwise. She says she gets recognized at school and is asked for her autograph.
These two are well on their way to being star journalists. They wrap up their mission on camera, "I'm Saige Frazier and I'm Payne Newsome, reporting for WALB."
Saige and Payne anchor a weekly news broadcast at their school.
