Hartford, Conn., ABC affiliate WTNH has announced a new addition to its morning news team: Nell the dog. Ali Reed, co-anchor of “Good Morning Connecticut,” has been bringing her 9-year-old Cockapoo to set for some time now, but the pooch will soon be a regular fixture on the morning show.
According to a post on the station’s site (‘written’ by Nell) the dog is looking for story ideas:
Let me know what you’d like to see me do on air and what stories you’d like covered! You can email Report!t or reach out to me on Twitter (I just joined! I’m finding it very hard to express myself in 140 characters…not to mention to type with paws!) @AnchorDogNell.
Yes, the dog has her own Twitter handle. Watch as Reed announces Nell’s new position to her colleagues in the video above.
