I ended up in broadcasting, not because it was a passion of mine, but I simply could not pass a feature writing class in college. That's when I discovered I wasn't a great writer, but rather a broadcaster, and soon after getting my feet wet, I fell in love with being a storyteller. My career started in TV, and I spent about 10 years reporting, the majority of my time at KATC TV-3.
When I decided to give radio shot, I walked into unfamiliar territory but quickly discovered radio is fun and, unlike TV news, getting information to listeners is immediate. No time wasted getting a camera crew ready, no time wasted applying makeup and making sure every strand of hair is in place. It's me, the microphone and our dedicated listeners. Every day, I'm grateful to those who trust me during the Afternoon Report to tell them what's happening in their communities.
