With hundreds of adoring fans lining up for daily segments and frequent concerts, serving as the producer who oversees the famed “Today” show plaza is a heavy lift. But Alex Ficquette gets the job done, with some help from social media.
Lost Remote was at the OneRepublic concert in the plaza Friday to watch the Associate Producer in action. Every day, whether it’s a big concert or smaller segment, Ficquette aims to rev up fans.
“We had Blakely, hashtag #hireBlakely,” Ficquette told us about one fan. “She was here in the dead of winter right after her college graduation and held the sign outside.”
