I have been covering New Jersey news for more than 25 years, and have served as New Jersey 101.5’s lead investigative reporter since 2000. I've reported on a number of breaking news stories, including the 9/11 Terror Attacks, the Jersey based Anthrax Attack Investigation, the resignation of Governor Jim Mcgreevey, Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy as well as the terror bomb attack down the shore. I have covered the campaigns of Governors McGreevey Corzine, and Christie, as well as U.S. Senators Frank Lautenberg Bob Menendez and Cory booker. Additionally, I broke the story – in a series of reports – on New Jersey’s crumbling, dangerous bridges. I am proud to have received numerous awards for coverage of New Jersey stories, and been featured as an expert reporter on CNN’s Nancy Grace show, covering various topics including the Prom Mom Baby dumped in Trash segment.
