As political and investigative reporter for Louisville's WHAS-TV, he won two regional Emmy Awards for breaking the news of Gov. Paul Patton's 2002 sex scandal and reporting that the derailment of a train carrying Agent Orange in Horse Cave, Ky., apparently led to higher-than-normal rates of cancer in the area. The station won an Edward R. Murrow Award for its coverage of the Patton scandal. He worked at WHAS from 1987 to 2009 after reporting for Lexington's WLEX-TV, the Kentucky Radio Network and Frankfort's WKED Radio, where he also served as news director. He began his broadcast career at WKCT/WDNS-FM in Bowling Green while still a student at Western Kentucky University. In 2002, Louisville Magazine and LEO Weekly both named him Best TV Reporter in the market. The Louisville League of Women Voters named him Political Reporter of the Year in 2007. He joined the University of Louisville in 2009 as director of media relations.
