A Career Ends

My professional journalism career concluded Oct. 3, 2016 after nearly 49 years of radio, television, print and online reporting. I exited as a quasi government employee (Iowa State University), and started as a federal employee (U.S. Marine Corps). In between, I worked for commercial news organizations and as a freelancer. KCCI-TV did an overview of my life which is posted below. I continue to write my full length book about some of the broadcasters and news events I've covered over the last half century. KCCI Feature Story
