Do you write your own copy or is there a team that does that?
News stories are written by professionals. The rest of the show is ad-libbed -- so blame us.
What do you do when the teleprompter goes out?
Enjoy the show even more.
What's the hardest story you've ever covered?
No question -- 9/11 -- as it was happening before us in real time.
Who is the gold standard for newsmen in LA (i.e., who do you look up to)?
The guys who came before and created the template. And Hal Eisner.
How much did Anchorman resonate with you?
I didn’t realize it wasn’t a documentary.
Do you love lamp?
I would if I knew what that meant.
How much did Nightcrawler resonate with you?
Made me never want to work late at night.
Does your hair always look that way or do you spend a lot of time on it?
Four minutes with the hair person at the station, while trying not to breathe in the pollution of all the hair spray from the women on the show.
