Dayton, Ohio (WDTN) - It's sort of weird to write a story about yourself, but here goes.

After almost 30 years at WDTN Channel 2, it's been a true honor, privilege and of course lots of fun to tell stories about my hometown.

And to my WDTN/Dayton's CW extended family, thank you too.
We have the best crew in town, but you already knew that.
