In my new blog, DailyNewsGems, I hope to highlight, from time to time, stories involving good sound journalism, whether it is crime reporting through creative use of public records, city hall/government malfeasance, medical and consumer investigations, enterprise and investigative reporting, etc., in ways which would be of interest to a national readership rather than the hyper-local demographic.
Before being laid-off in July, 2008, I worked as a News Researcher for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, a Tribune newspaper in Fort Lauderdale, FL since 2002.
I have a strong interest in Sports, U.S. Politics, as well as European history.
Reading, blogging, listening to history lectures (Great Courses) from the Teaching Co.
