In October 2013, literally days before November Sweeps began, I started my first full-time broadcast journalism job at KNWA/KFTA, a NBC/Fox duopoly in Fayetteville, Arkansas (DMA #100). I’ve been the weekday night-side producer of the Fox News Edge at 5:30 and 9 p.m. for more than a year.

In April 2015, I moved to KTUL, the ABC affiliate in Tulsa, Oklahoma (DMA #60).
From April until mid-October, I was weekend producer and weekday associate producer and fill-in producer. In that time, not only did I write for and produce on dayside and nightside newscasts as needed, but I produced and boothed special coverage such as President Obama’s visit to Oklahoma in the summer.
After filling in on the morning show, Good Morning Oklahoma, for a few weeks, I eventually was moved to GMO to serve as interim senior morning producer, starting in mid-October. I was in charge of content, including breaking news locally and beyond, and reporter story assignments and overseeing producers.

Ultimately, I decided it was time to go back to line producing and move closer to home. I took an opportunity at Channel 5 Eyewitness News, KSTP-TV (ABC) in St. Paul, Minnesota. Since May 2016, I’ve been a producer on the morning show, advancing from the 4:30 to the 5:30 shows and now to the 6:30 a.m. shows. Here are a few clips from my shows. In addition to writing and showcasing stories and boothing the newscasts, I help develop the morning plan for the reporter and other major elements in the shows day-to-day.
