“Don’t Sleep” Eve

Not sure how to feel or what to think today.  I’m too busy working! 

It’s been 9 months since my last newscast at CNN.  And, tomorrow, my new chapter and my new show begin.  I’m surrounded today by family, friends, and supporters.  I’m fielding phone calls, emails, text messages, and tweets of support.  I’m humbled by the kinds words but also the expectations.  

One problem:  I can’t sleep.  I haven’t had a good night of rest in forever.  So, when you see me walk out on the set on Monday night for the premiere of “Don’t Sleep,” please ignore the bags under my eyes.  I promise there will be a pep in my step.

Also, in just a bit, I’ll let you know who will be joining me as guests for the first week of “Don’t Sleep.”
