problem solver | investigator
Over the past two years developing the CBS4 Problem Solvers franchise from scratch in Indianapolis, I've learned that viewers are in need of an advocate who will listen and strive to help them. Television news may be changing, but journalists are needed as much as ever. I've grown Problem Solvers into an identifiable brand and in its first year, we received four Emmy nominations and won an Associated Press award for Best Community Impact. With 10 years' experience as a reporter, about half of that as an MMJ, I've learned how to combine storytelling, visuals, and documents in a way that has drawn viewers to turn to us for their news and for help.
