Mary Tyler Moore Moments: Nancy Travers

When I first started out, just out of college, 28 years ago, I was working overnights at WOBR Beach 95. I filled in as needed for Uncle Rick (Greg Smrdel) doing 6-mid and occasionally morning news for Gregory Clark, all the while working 9-5 at the Coastland Times newspaper.

When I would drive up to my parking space on Budleigh Street in Manteo, I would think….each time…I am Mary Tyler Moore! I imagined myself throwing my hat in the air in the middle of the street…even though I never wore hats because I never looked good in them! I knew then, as I know even more now, every girl needs her Mary Tyler Moore time!

I’m so lucky! I’m so grateful! I’m so happy to have had my Mary Tyler Moore time!
