New Weekly Suzie Button segment....

Hi, Friends! I learn a lot of interesting things while captioning, I get new ideas, I hear sad stories, happy stories, and even some extraordinary stories! I want to start a once-a-week segment to share some tidbit of info or something that I think my blogger friends will find interesting from my job as a broadcast captioner. Also you can see more about being a Broadcast Captioner here.
I can't think of a name to make up a banner, does anyone have a "cute" idea?!! Please leave a comment if you do.
Anyways, I thought I'd start today with an interesting tidbit about the History of the Harlem Globetrotters, the actual story I captioned is below and I found it interesting, and I thought you might too! You can read more about the Harlem Globetrotters at their official site here Harlem Globetrotters
Please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts! Happy Wednesday! Suzie


  1. Suzie, I feel so dumb...I don't know what a Broadcast Captioner does. I worked in Traffic at The Weather Channel for 3 years. Love The Weather Channel...hated the job...positioning commercials into the right spot of the log...allllll day. It was 3 loooong years. Your job sounds way cooler! Susan

  2. I don't know what they do either.Will you explain?I love the Globetrotters...Ann

  3. I would really enjoy reading the stories and things you find out about as a Broadcast Captioner. Now I see that a couple people don't know what you do exactly. At the moment I don't have an idea about a banner for you. But if I do I will let you know. Perhaps I need to do a post about how I am one of those as a deaf and hard of hearing person really benefits from people like you. Otherwise I would be out of the loop about anything that was on TV.
