When did you start working here? September 1986

Where else have you worked? WGAL-TV, Lancaster, PA. I started as a morning anchor and reporter, and ended up as the evening anchor

What are you most proud of when it comes to your work? I'm probably grateful more than proud that I've sustained a career in television news for more than 30 years!  I'm grateful for the people I've worked with at 9 On Your Side, and all the people I have met and interviewed. I'm proud of the the reports we've done for Healthy Living, for our Ten Years Later special, the stories we produced when I interviewed President Obama, reporting on the tornados of 2012, and our brain imaging story that won an Emmy. It's always teamwork, and that's the fun and satisfying part.

What are you most proud of in your own life? Above all else, I'm proud of my daughter, Katherine. She has become her own person, a strong, creative young woman with a good heart.

What do you love about living in the Tri-State? I love the river, I love the hills, I love the neighborhoods and how each one has its its own character. I grew up in a small town, and I love that my neighborhood feels like a small town, that I see all the "regulars" at my local coffee shop, and I can meet good friends in ten minutes.

What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions? Hyde Park Square, Vine Street, Bearcats football and basketball, Ault Park, boating on the Ohio River, New Richmond, the Taft Museum, Cincinnati Art Museum, Eden Park and Mt. Adams

All time favorites? TV: The Mary Tyler Moore Show (surprise!), Cheers, Hill St. Blues, Grey's Anatomy, Downton Abbey, Homeland.  Movies:Sense and Sensibility, Bridget Jones's Diary, Annie Hall, Casablanca, Notorious, anything with Cary Grant.  Books: The Once and Future King, The Age of Innocence, The House of Mirth, The Velveteen Rabbit, Peter Pan, Pillars of the Earth, Beach Music.  Bands: The Beatles, Huey Lewis and the News

Apps you can't live without? Frankly, I can live just fine without any apps at all, but Twitter is nice for work, and UrbanSpoon is helpful
