Q: How is it to adapt to working overnights every weeknight on “World News Now”?

A: It really is a challenge, because everyone who surrounds the show falls in love with whatever format they’ve been doing. It was one way when Paula (Faris) and Rob (Nelson) were there, and they had built in a certain amount of time to do certain things ... for chatting or (such segments as) “The Mix” or “The Skinny.”

All of that changed when John (Muller) and I came in, because we have our own individual styles -- and not only that, but we’ve created a style together. Everybody has to get on board with what’s going on, and it took a little while to find our groove. And when we did, it just became second nature.

Q: At that hour, the audience grows very accustomed to news anchors. How have you found that aspect?

A: We have some very, very loyal fans, and they’re not afraid to let us know when we say something they’re not a fan of or show video they’re not a fan of -- or if we say something that’s struck a chord. If I have an opinion about something or mention some extra little nugget of information, that will spark a conversation on Facebook, or I’ll get Tweets about it.

Whatever it is, it’s something so unexpected, almost always the little thing you’ll toss out as you’re going to a break. I think that is even more rewarding, just to know they’re connecting with you on a basic level. That’s just a wonderful feeling.
