Once, Huang An for some reason can not participate in the program production, as an assistant, she will replace Huang An do a program. The program was well received by viewers and its ratings skyrocketed. Finally, she replaced Huang An. Afterward, Huang An said: "I knew I was going to be unable to do it because I had been 'stolen' a lot. I congratulate her on her success!"

Because laid-off, so there will be a sense of crisis; Because there is a sense of crisis, so will struggle; Because of hard work, so will succeed. The laid-off experience forged Wang Xiaoya, the achievement of a generation of CCTV's famous mouth.
