Welcome to 2020, the year that took everything we once knew and flipped our everyday life upside down.

On May 18, the office and studios at Fun 107 will slowly be returning back to life. For the past two months, there has only been a small handful of employees still working within the building, a skeleton crew to say the least.

I've been back and forth between Fun 107 and our sister station WBSM to ensure that the on-air personalities can continue to deliver their show from the comfort and safety of their homes. Yes, it has been a lot of work, but it was a job I have been proud to take on from the get-go.

Well, since it's almost time for the Rock and Fox Show crew to reunite, the studio has been undergoing some changes to encourage social distancing.

Between the three of us – Michael Rock, Christine Fox, and myself – I've barricaded our work-spaces with plexiglass spacers to ensure we are respecting each other's "personal bubbles." Both Michael and Christine have kids and a family to go home to, so the last thing I want happening is for anyone to catch anything since the coronavirus is still going to be out there for a while.

You've heard the term "new normal" as a reference to life moving forward once the economy begins to slowly and cautiously open back up again, but quite frankly, I don't like how it sounds. Not that I have any say in it, but the "new normal" just comes off as a change that no one wanted, asked for, or anticipated.

These plexiglass shields may be temporary and will feel as though we're talking to each other through the drive-up window of a bank – or, even worse, a prison – but we have to do what's in our best interest for now and let the unforeseeable future take its course.
