The Thrill of Live Reporting

Sunday Night Football reporter Michele Tafoya shares tips with Kid Reporter

By Grace Ybarra | October 25 , 2011

On September 25, the Indianapolis Colts hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in a nationally-televised NFL football game broadcast on NBC Sunday Night Football. One member of the Sunday Night Football team is Michele Tafoya, who reports from the field during games.

Before the Colts-Steelers game, Kid Reporter Grace Ybarra talked to Michele Tafoya about being a female sports journalist and how covering live sports is different than other kinds of reporting.

    Spirit Animals #7 ­ LIB

    by Marie Lu

    Everything comes to a head in this seventh book in the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series. The world of Erdas will be changed forever.

    Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan were once ordinary kids. Then they discovered that they had spirit animals-wise and powerful partners who granted them with amazing gifts…and a legendary responsibility.

    Together, the team has journeyed across Erdas, racing to stop a merciless foe. They have laughed and fought together. They've won challenges and lost friends. Some have even lost themselves.

    Now that journey is about to end. They must reach a place forgotten by time and face off against an ancient enemy breaking free from his prison. They have just one chance to stop him…or the whole world will shatter.

    Tombquest #1 ­ TR

    by Michael Northrop

    From the team that brought you The 39 Clues and Spirit Animals comes a brand new epic Egyptian adventure!

    Nothing can save Alex Sennefer's life. That's what all the doctors say, but his mother knows it's not true. She knows that the Lost Spells of the Egyptian Book of the Dead can crack open a door to the afterlife and pull her son back from the brink. But when she uses the spells, five evil ancients­­the Death Walkers­­are also brought back to life.

    An ancient evil has been unleashed. Mummies are awakening. New York is overrun with scorpions. And worst of all for Alex, his mom and the Lost Spells have both disappeared. He and his best friend, Ren, will do anything to find his mom and save the world…even if that means going head­to­head with a Death Walker who has been plotting his revenge for 3,000 years.

    Read the book, then continue the adventure online! Build an Egyptian tomb of your own, hide treasure and protect it with traps, then challenge your friends to play through!
