Live from Studio 1A: American Beauty...

Yesterday afternoon I got a call asking me to help one of our associate producers, Nick Palladino, on a spot for this morning.  The spot was a "tease" for our new series coming up called "America the Beautiful" - our search for the most beautiful location in America.  WATCH VIDEO. To prepare the short video montage we had to pick iconic and beautiful images of America from vast archives of foot

Yesterday afternoon I got a call asking me to help one of our associate producers, Nick Palladino, on a spot for this morning.  The spot was a "tease" for our new series coming up called "America the Beautiful" - our search for the most beautiful location in America.  WATCH VIDEO. 

To prepare the short video montage we had to pick iconic and beautiful images of America from vast archives of footage.  It was, to say the least, a daunting task.  To start off, Nick and I made a list of American landmarks and images we thought would fit the piece, and then we sorted through and found different shots and put them together to music. 

It was really interesting seeing what sparked our imagination, and it got me thinking about what is unique to our country.  Little league, a backyard, the Las Vegas strip, fireworks, Old Faithful - what captures our spirit and beauty?  

What images would make your list?
