Most Memorable Stories: One of the most memorable stories I ever did was in Syracuse, New York. Days before Christmas, a charity that was collecting gifts for needy families was burglarized. I reported the story, and people responded. Our story generated more donations than the organization had collected before the gifts were stolen. They were able to help many more families.

Something most people don't know about me: I don’t like to speak in front of large crowds.
