On a day-to-day basis at THV11, I am leading the 6pm newscast; inside the courtroom when a controversial decision is made, at the prison as the execution is completed, or live in the field with the exclusive information.

I am also the THV11 Saturday Morning anchor. Since I took on the role, we’ve incorporated more political interviews with state and national leaders addressing the concerns of Arkansans. Those sources were developed in my time at the State Capitol covering the 2016 Legislative Session.
