When the theatre is too believable
In her first month as part of the K-Rock Geelong breakfast show, Becs Lee (right) has already learnt a valuable lesson.
"Never, under any circumstances, use the word 'violated' on air," says Becs.
The B Team developed a story arc that saw a Private Investigator tail Becs for a couple of days. The idea was to snap her in some compromising scenarios like "entering the premises of a rival network, juggling two love interests etc," says Becs, "I would then be cross-examined on air about my questionable activities, and a few damning pics drip-fed online."
That was the idea anyway.
Becs says, "I was told to make my reaction 'believable'. Unfortunately, my performance was a little too convincing and it resulted in a deluge of complaints. We had to abort the whole thing owing to the virtual lynch mob forming on FB and the phone lines."
