Having worked in the media business for well over 23 years now, I can tell you that one of the toughest jobs in the business is reporting. Men and women work hard each and every day monitoring, analyzing, interviewing, writing and delivering news that is both hard hitting and at times warm and fuzzy. Reporters endure a lot to bring us the latest buzz, and sometimes they put themselves in harm's way to get it. And isn't it all about mining for the truth?

I have a lot of friends in the news business, and the video you are about to watch, in some ways, shows the difference between a good reporter and a great reporter.

And by the way, if you've ever thought about doing it because the pay is good, think again. Reporters of longevity do it because they love it.
