I am a New Bedford native who's been covering local news in the region since 1973. I worked at WBSM for 11 years in the 1970's and 80's before joining "Local Cable News," Channel 13 in Fall River. I served as News Director there for 22 years, covering crime, politics and human interest stories. When the program ended in 2006, I happily accepted an offer to rejoin WBSM. My family and I live in North Dartmouth.
