The two things I have always been most interested in are sports and public speaking. I turned out to be a much better speaker than athlete, so I feel very lucky I was able to combine my two passions into a career.

Not many people can say they like going to work every day, and I do. Every day is different, covering different sports, different stories, different people, and I am fortunate to have covered some of the biggest sports events and some of the best athletes in the world.

Walking on the court at an NBA Playoff Game, on the track just before the cars are started for the Indy 500, and on the field at the Super Bowl makes my job special, but so do other less glamorous events. A good high school football game on a Friday night can get me going! It is a privilege to have access to big games and great athletes, but there is responsibility that goes with reporting on the games and the athletes who perform in them, and I don’t take that lightly.

I always try to be as accurate, honest and as fair as possible in my reporting, no matter what the story is, but I am not afraid to add my perspective to a story, if I feel it’s warranted. I’m not saying I’m always right, but you will always know where I stand.

If you don’t agree with me, please let me know. Every sports fan has an opinion, and, believe me, I hear a lot of them! It’s one more thing that makes my job interesting.
