More on those stories in a moment...but we start with my resume. We'll keep this short because that Margaret Cho story is good.
Reggie Aqui is an anchor for ABC7 Mornings. He came to the station in October 2015 after anchoring at KGW-TV in Portland, Oregon. Prior to that, he worked for CNN in Atlanta as an anchor for the network's streaming news service, CNN.com Live and as a freelance anchor for CNN International. At CNN.com, he anchored CNN/Facebook coverage of President Obama's inauguration, at the time the most viewed streaming event. He also extensively covered the 'Arab Spring' uprising and the Japanese Tsunami disaster on CNN International. On CNN U.S. he reported from Virginia Tech's campus after the nation's deadliest school shooting and traveled to breaking news across the country from wildfires in California to record snowfalls in upstate New York. He began his career in Green Bay, Wisconsin at WLUK, followed by WDJT in Milwaukee and KHOU in Houston, Texas. He is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
Okay, back to Margaret Cho. I took a stand-up comedy class that ended with a show in front of family and friends. When I walked in the door, Margaret Cho was there. I was stunned and told her I was about to do my graduation set and she said, "Oh, I know. I'm going to perform right after you." She took pity on me and laughed at my jokes. It was the best $5 cover my friends ever spent.
Dolly Parton remains the favorite interview of my career. She surprised me live on CNN.com with a proposal to sing a duet. We sang 'Islands in The Stream' and I will never do anything cooler in my whole life.
Finally... a 6'4 mouse? I saved up for college by working at Chuck E. Cheese in high school. Mostly I did birthday party hosting but sometimes they would need me to wear the costume. It's as awkward as it sounds.
If this news thing doesn't work out I still know all the words to Chuck E.'s birthday song. Okay, back to business.
Reggie Aqui lives in San Francisco with his husband Phil and their beagle-mix, Woodstock. He is obsessed with Disney theme parks and is finally okay admitting it now that he works for a station owned by the Walt Disney Company.
I Know Sports: Apparently Steph Curry has a clone and they're about to play each other
The Curry clan has quite the conflict. Steph is taking on his brother, Seth, and the winner goes to the NBA Finals. This seems like it's going to cause some drama, but Reggie already knows who the Curry clan will root for.
'If the Stanley Cup could talk it would be a best-seller;' hear stories surrounding the Stanley Cup
Oh, the crazy things the Stanley Cup has been through. The most coveted prize in hockey stopped by and the keeper of the Cup shared some stories of what it's been through. Also, it almost went horribly wrong when Reggie Aqui kept trying to touch the Cup.
I Know Sports: Mike Fiers throws no-hitter, opens door for an unlimited amount of puns
PUN INTENDED: Mike Fiers threw a no-hitter for the Oakland A's. His name is pronounced like "fires" and that opened the door for Reggie Aqui to deliver as many ridiculous puns as he could in 25 seconds.
