GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - For those that don't already know, I want to introduce you to something new I'm doing. I've recently launched a podcast called, "Alone at the Desk." We call it that because we think it sounds cool.

More important is the substance of the podcast. I describe as about life, the news industry and life in the industry. I'll be sharing some personal thoughts about all of it. The episodes are about ten minutes long, so you can listen to them on one car trip.

If you'd like to hear the first episode, go here. If you'd like to hear the three other episodes I have loaded, just go to Or, you can download them all from SoundCloud. I hope you'll check them out!
