For the children of New Jersey 101.5 staff, Take Your Child to Work Day is a hands-on learning experience.

More than 100 children headed to the Statehouse in Trenton Thursday to join their parents for Take Your Children to Work Day. Among them was Audrey Symons, whose dad happens to be New Jersey 101.5 Statehouse reporter Michael Symons.

The 9-year-old joined her peers on the steps of the state capitol building for an Autism Awareness event called Bubbles for Autism, in honor of Autism Awareness Month. According to Faces 4 Autism, the bubbles are a sign of joy, hope and laughter and the event is designed to bring people together and "create a new awareness of families facing autism."

But during the event, Audrey also took her father's mic and gave reporting a try. She interviewed state Acting Human Services Commissioner Elizabeth Connolly about autism in New Jersey.

Watch the video above to hear Audrey's report. Think she has a future in radio? We certainly do!
