By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

News anchors, reporters and photographers in Albany, N.Y., are putting competition aside during the Covid-19 work-from-home cycle.

A handful of female talent in the market created their own Don’t Rush Challenge, a video that is edited together to make it look like you get full hair and makeup ready in seconds.

Spectrum Albany reporter Mercedes Williams started off the challenge and tossed to her colleagues from various other stations.


“A little something to brighten your day from me and a few ladies holding it down for you in the #CapitalRegion,” she wrote.

The video is racking up views.

New York City NY1 anchor Cheryl Wills commented, “This is so dope. Go Ladies!”
