Wolfe shared that being on television was a dream of hers since she was a child:
“Ever since I can remember, I wanted to work in front of the camera. I would always ‘commentate’ the world around me… whether it was announcing at age three what everyone was eating for breakfast in the mornings; or, at age nine, what homework assignment we had; or just saying goodnight to my family at the end of the evening by my early teens. Everything was a telecast. My hairbrush was a microphone. My playdates with friends were news stories, and my theatrical productions in grade school may as well have been Broadway. I was never sure exactly what I’d be doing when I grew up, but I was certain it would involve a live camera.”
