What I Love most About Memphis: Beale Street, the great food, its history, AutoZone Park, and the architecture.

Most Interesting Assignment: I have two. Almost immediately after I arrived in Memphis, I was sent to my alma mater, Columbine High School, to cover the first day of school since the terrible shootings there. My other memorable assignment happened the week of September 11th, 2001. I traveled with a local trucker, who took his one day off, to haul three trailers full of donations to New York. We drove more than 22 hours, straight through. I will never forget seeing the smoke in the horizon, as we neared the New York state border. That experience changed me forever.
