I feel honored to be part of a remarkable news team at WIKY- something I've enjoyed for the past 29 years. And I am fortunate to be given the tools to do the job. Hearing from listeners at meetings, or while getting my daily work-out, is rewarding. They often mention our coverage of both good and bad events in the community. The efforts have helped WIKY News win scores of Associated Press First Place awards for Best Newscast, Best Spot (breaking) News coverage, Best General News coverage and Best Public Affairs programming. WIKY owners and top managers allow us to share ourselves with our community and state. I'm honored to serve as a commissioner with the Indiana Debate Commission and as the southern Indiana representative of the Supreme Court's Open Courts project. I've also enjoyed serving as President of the Indiana Associated Press Broadcasters Association, the Newburgh Building Commission, Historic Newburgh, Inc. and as Chairman of the Goodwill of Evansville board. Winning the Rotary Civic Award was quite a thrill. I firmly believe that service is the dues we pay for the gifts we are given in life. My greatest enjoyment is time spent with my family and friends.
