I’m an Emmy Award-Winning Broadcast journalist with over twenty-years in the television news business as an anchor/reporter/producer. My first novel, “Viewer Discretion Advised” is loosely based on my career in TV news and has been published to favorable reviews from KIRKUS and Amazon. It’s available on Amazon, BN and at various bookstores.
What you see and hear on the news from the anchors and reporters, while at home watching the television, is nothing as exciting and as shocking as what goes on behind the scenes.
I was an intern at CNN in NYC when they first started in 1985 before I landed my first job in Tyler, Texas as a reporter. After Texas, I went to KLAS(CBS), Las Vegas where I was a news producer. I moved on to WGGB(ABC) Springfield MA and then to WTNH(ABC) New Haven, CT where I won my first Emmy. I joined WSVN(FOX), Miami in 1991 as a senior producer. I was part of the team reformatting the local evening news/entertainment show, “7:30” which consistently beat “Entertainment Tonight” in the ratings. I returned to the front of the camera in 1995 at WPLG(ABC) as their Style Reporter. In addition, I have worked for Fox News Channel as a Features Reporter and the All News Channel as Weekend Anchor.
I currently live in Miami.
