Brady and I have had a busy summer. Here are some of the highlights. A few weeks ago we took a much-needed vacation to Maui, along with my family.

The Great Escape

This week we launched a series on our morning show called “The Great Escape.” Every Friday for the next three weeks, KSL 5 Today goes on the road to a different quadrant of the state, to spotlight the lesser known activities that area has to offer. This week: Northeastern Utah. I was the field producer for this adventure. I traveled out with anchor Scott Haws and crew man/camera operator Jeff Smith.
