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!
