While some may think that being a local news anchor is an easy job, the fact is that-it’s not. In addition to being on top of the news, there’s a certain appearance they must maintain. Typically it’s an image of a composed and put-together professional.Laura Warren, an anchor for WRDW-TV in Augusta, Georgia, is expecting a baby boy in November, and she created a blog called “Bump, Baby and Breaking news” to document the ups and downs of her pregnancy journey. The mom-to-be news anchor took to her blog to reflect and share thoughts on body-shaming after a viewer attacked her in a voicemail, calling her appearance “disgusting.”On July 4, she shared a troubling story about a viewer who left her a scathing voicemail the day before. She received a voicemail from a woman who said,”Please go to Target and buy some decent maternity clothes so you don’t walk around looking like you got a watermelon strapped under your too tight outfits.” She added,”You’re getting to be where you’re disgusting on the TV.”No one appreciates being called disgusting. Laura too was stuck with this comment. However, she turned this negativity into her positive energy. She said,”I consider myself a confident, pretty secure, independent, woman. Why was I letting this one ridiculous, negative comment ruin my whole day? I’ve gotten dozens of compliments from viewers saying nice things about my pregnancy, why was this the one that stuck? ”
“I don’t really have an answer. If I did, I could probably solve the world’s bullying problem,” she wrote.
“How do we teach our kids to be kind when adults all around them can say such cruel things?” “I’m going to say as many nice things as I can to as many people as I can, and I’m going to do it in a dress that fits these beautiful new curves with my ‘watermelon’ stomach showing,” she added.
She concluded and said, “I wanted this to be a reminder that your words have such power, Use them for good.”If there’s one thing we can take away from this, it’s something that our parents taught us since we were little, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
