Not-So-Undercover Boss - KOAM TV 7

Aired February 18, 2010

MSSU President and KOAM GM put to the test in "(Not So) Undercover Boss"

The CBS program "Undercover Boss" has various corporate CEO's pose as job seekers and get training from their own employees.

We decided to try something similar with an area university president who has had his time in the spotlight lately, but never quite like this, as well as our own boss here at KOAM.

In part one of Dowe Quick's special report "(Not So) Undercover Boss" we start with Missouri Southern State University President Dr. Bruce Speck, who is put to the test in the student cafeteria.

He will get some on-the-job training and some first-hand experience with food preparation and serving.  He encounters a bump or two along the way, and will be critiqued by the kitchen staff.

Watch Dr. Bruce Speck's on the job training

Dr. Speck admits the experience was not completely new to him - he used to work in food service many years ago.

But he says he has a renewed appreciation for the pace and the pressure.

In part two, we put KOAM General Manager Danny Thomas - our boss - to the test.

Watch Danny Thomas take on the control room and weather forecasting

And thanks to the Internet we can show you the entire Skywatch 7 Weather Forecast that Danny delivered.

Each segment of our broadcast gets a certain amount of time, and that includes Weather.  Sometimes Doug, Dave and Kevin get a little more time if the weather is bad, and sometimes they get a little less.

Danny was given 3:15 for this forecast given just before Valentine's Day.

Let's see how he does.

Watch as Danny Thomas tries Doug Heady's job (with time allotted countdown)
