Round Table Productions is scheduled to present Jamie Samuelsen and Christy McDonald together, talking about balancing career, marriage and family at the Third Thursday Round Table to be held during the lunch hour on February 17, 2011 in Troy, Michigan.
The married couple are two well known and well respected Southeast Michigan broadcasters. Jamie is Sports Director at WCSX-FM, a blogger at www.freep.com and a member of the Fox-2 SportsWorks Roundtable. Christy was an Emmy Award winning News Anchor and General Assignment Reporter at WXYZ TV-7. She recently made a big career decision to leave Channel 7 in December 2010, after management told her she could no longer work part time, but had to come back full time. As the mom of three young children, she is trying to find balance with her career and family life.
Jamie and Christy will share about working their beats and meeting deadlines while changing diapers, tending to toddlers and finding time for their family, their relationship and themselves. "This is the first time in six years I've had two Third Thursday presenters at the same time," says event host and founder Dean La Douceur, "and I couldn't think of two nicer people with a more genuine story to tell than Christy and Jamie."
