I'm proud to be the host of the WJON Morning News Watch. The toughest part of the job might be getting up at 4am but when the clock strikes 5 the Magic happens. I spend most of my time searching for both valuable information and meaningless stuff. My two kids keep me busy with both frustration and pride. Tune in weekdays to find out what Magic will happen next.
