I was born in Walpole, Massachusetts and graduated from Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications.
My very first job was as a reporter/anchor at WAGM-TV in Presque Isle, Maine. I was always told to start at the bottom, and if you look at the bottom of the television markets in America, you’ll find Presque Isle, Maine.
From 1984 until 1997 I worked at WBTV in Charlotte, and for a short period of time, I hosted a radio talk show on WBT Radio.
I came to Memphis in 1997, where I worked at WREG-TV until October of 2011. I have been in radio and television for more than 35 years. I joined the team at ABC 24 WPTY-TV in January 2012.
I love being a reporter. I can’t think of any job that is as rewarding as this job. Memphis is, by far, my favorite city of all the places I’ve worked. The people here work hard, they struggle at times, and they just want somebody to listen to them. That’s my job. They need answers to problems. I think that’s my job. And when I succeed…that’s when it’s rewarding.
I play some golf, at least that’s what I call it. When people see me play they’ll normally say, “I wouldn’t call what you’re doing playing golf.”
I'm divorced, no kids, had a kitty named Cronkite once, but Cronkite apparently got bored, because one day, I opened the door, and Cronkite hit the road…a little knapsack in his paws, and a sign saying “Free at Last.”
