KTHV: Anchor/Multi-Media Journalist – Little Rock, AR Oct 2015 – Present
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.

Those sources were developed in my time at the State Capitol covering the 2016 Legislative Session.
