"Everything happens for the best," my mother said whenever I faced disappointment. "If you can carry on, one day something good will happen."
After graduating from college in 1932, I decided to try for a job as a sports announcer (播音员) on the radio. I took the bus to Chica go and knocked on the door of every radio station. But I was refused every time. In one studio, a nice lady told me that big radio stations didn’t want to accept inexperienced (没经验的) persons. "Go to the countryside and find a small station that’ll give you a chance," she said.
I returned home, Dixon in Illinois. My father said Smith Ward had opened a store and wanted a local sportsman to manage its sports department. Since I had played high school football in Dixon, I applied. The job sounded just right for me, but I still failed in the interview. As I left his office, I felt sad. I asked aloud, "How can a man become a sports announcer if he can’t get a job in a radio station"
I was waiting for the lift when I heard Smith Ward calling, "What did you say about sports Do you know anything about football" Then he made me stand before a microphone and asked me to broadcast an imaginary (想象的) game. As a result, I did a wonderful job and was told to broadcast Saturday’s game!
Revolutionary TV Ears
TV Ears has helped thousands of people with various degrees of hearing loss hear the television clearly without turning up the volume(音量) and now it’s better and more affordable than ever! With TV Ears wireless technology, you set your own headset volume, while other TV listeners hear the television at a volume level that’s comfortable for them. You can even listen through the headset only and put the TV on mute(静音) if the situation calls for a quiet environment-maybe the baby is sleeping. Or perhaps you are the only one who is interested in listening to the ballgame.
