First TV Appearance: Do morning announcements in 8th grade count? If  not, my first newscast in college with Newsteam Boulder.

Other TV jobs/markets/stations: My first big kid job was at KLEW-TV in Lewiston, ID. I anchored the 11 PM newscast and produced the 5, 6 and 11.

Most Memorable Interview: I got to interview The Swon Brothers! I didn’t even watch The Voice when they were on it, but I’m a huge country music fan so I was pretty excited. Plus now I’m only one degree away from Carrie Underwood.

First Reporting Story: It was about a small town in Idaho’s lawsuit with the EPA. I remember how glad the city leaders were that I was shedding some light on what they were going through. As a reporter, it’s great when people are actually happy to see you!
