What an honor it was to have journalist, host, and news anchor Tashara Parker as a guest!
After 3 years of serving the East Texas community at CBS19, she recently announced that she has joined the team at WFAA in Dallas as their newest morning anchor and traffic reporter.
Our conversation starts with her current thoughts and feelings after receiving the news that October 28th will henceforth be known as Tashara Parker Day.
We also dive into the roots of her career and the skills and experiences that have shaped the person she is today.
Then we jump into the pillars of the podcast; communication, community and company.
We talk about the power of 1 on 1 connection, building meaningful relationship, sharing on social media, her favorite thing about East Texas, her motivations and influences, connecting with others, networking, and much, much more!
There's a bunch of info to tease out of this episode for anyone interested in strengthening their communication and community building skills, and especially for those considering a career in the news.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did and decide to follow Tashara on social media as she continues to impact the community she serves so passionately.
This podcast was largely made possible by the East Texas Leadership Summit 2020 that Tashara and I will be Co chairing.
