Hello, my friends! Thanksfor watching FOX 2 News and thanks for logging on to our Web site.

I'm blessed to have one of thegreatest jobs in the world. In the 24 years that I've worked for the station,I've traveled the country with Nelson Mandela, followed the Pope, and coverednearly every major political convention. But best of all, I get to work withsome of the most talented reporters, photographers and producers inbroadcasting.

Along the way, I picked up twoEmmy Awards for reporting and four nominations for Best Anchor. Not badfor a young man who was on his way to becoming a lawyer when he got his firstbig break in television. I think I made the right choice.


Over the years, I've developeda deep and abiding faith in the people of metro Detroit. Time after time, I'veseen us overcome enormous odds. No matter where we live or what we do, there isa sense of community that always seems to bring us together. There is nothingwe cannot problem that we can't solve.


In addition to anchoring the 5:00, 6:00, 10:00 and the Edge at 11:00, I also host the popular talkshow, "Let It Rip!" every Thursday night. Whenever you watch Fox-2,you'll see a wide range of stories and people. Some of them will make you cry;some of them will make you angry; some of them may even leave you laughing. Butat the end of the newscast, I hope you feel that we've been working togetherfor you, trying to solve problems, not just expose them.

We hope it's theinformation you need to lead a better life.
