    Anchor / Producer / Reporter, WDAY-TV, Fargo, ND
    During the week I create and tell stories about people in our community as a reporter. On the weekend, it’s my job to determine the content (i.e. ‘ what’s news’) of the newscast and how we want to present that content to our viewers. Then, I go on-air to tell people what’s happening in our region.
