Nov. 6, 2007What was your most memorable story?
Just this year, near Sherman, I had a story about a Little League football team coping with the death of their teammate, who was only 8 years old when he was killed in a car crash. The players had to learn lessons they were too young to learn, and even though they were just in elementary school, their sense of respect and understanding was amazing.How did you get started in TV
