What You Enjoy About Local News:

Delivering relevant information to people that they can use. On a personal level, I appreciate seeing people, events and things up close and as they really are, then disseminating that for the viewers, hopefully with clarity and focus. We live in the information age, but if that information is not available to the people who need it the most, what is its value?
