Personal Quote:

My general philosophy of doing interviews is polite but persistent. I don't have an axe to grind in this, but I do have the responsibility to represent my viewers who have a lot of questions. People say to me, "I hope you get him!" I don't do that. I just want to talk to people and ask them. And if they don't give an answer, I want to ask them again. See more »
