I'm a news reporter in Portland, Oregon. A montage of me saying dumb things on air hit the front page this week. Ask me anything!
Hi Reddit! My name's Trevor Ault, I work for KOIN-6 News in Portland, Oregon. Earlier this week for my 2-year work anniversary I posted a video of me saying silly things on tv, out of context: https://youtu.be/ntLmL_OUdXk
My friend shared it to Reddit and the response was overwhelming. So many comments were incredibly kind, and only one person told me to kill myself. I count that as a victory.
Some of you reached out to me to do an AMA, and I'm taking off on a road trip, so I've got plenty of time.
I've been a Reddit lurker for years but never comment (as evidenced by post history). Looking forward to answering your questions and providing context to the video. Yes, I really do eat Oreos like that.
Update: Folks, this has been great. I'm now entering Canada and will be signing off for the time being. Thanks so much for your hospitality and your great questions. Doing something worthy of an AMA has secretly been a career goal of mine, and this was even better than I hoped or deserved. I'll definitely come back some time if you'll have me. Until then, back to lurking I go!
(Also if you tune in to KOIN Monday morning to try to watch, I won't be there, because of the Canada thing. See you Wednesday)
