Most interesting assignment? I've had so many that it's hard to mention just one. For six months I followed Cincinnati police recruits through the academy. It was an eye-opening experience. Because of the personal involvement, you get attached to the trainers and recruits. So attached that every time you hear of a police officer injured, you wonder if it's someone you know. I think police officers show tremendous dedication to their job and justice.
Other information: I enjoy my job. I love the competitiveness of it. I never know what story I'm covering from one day to the next. I love the spontaneity of it. I meet so many interesting people and yes, animals!
