Almost all of those years have involved producing or reporting for the morning news, meaning a wake-up call between 2:30 and 3:30 AM, depending on the assignment. But I'm done at lunchtime.
I have had such amazing experiences. Here are some of the people I've met and interviewed, or at least been very close to in a gaggle of other reporters. I put a link when I could find it.
(Don't worry, it's not name-dropping if they don't remember you. Seriously Donald, you never call, you never write.)
Jon Huntsman Jr
M. Russell Ballard
Orrin Hatch, Bob Bennet, Olene Walker, Gary Herbert, and various mayors, lawmakers, etc
I've done stories in cities from Springville to Layton, from Tooele to Park City -- and Haiti.
I've put my microphone in front of dogs, cats, chickens and sheep. Oh, and reindeer.
The stories that ALWAYS get me: troop farewells and homecomings, and tragedies involving children.
Lately I've been doing more for KSL TV and the Deseret News. I also try to Tweet and Facebook for work. Who knows what new challenges are in the future!
