Judge Comments:

john bartell2John Bartell is a reporter who can enterprise and dig for stories. A slow news day doesn’t exist for this reporter, who clearly delivers the lead story every day, a producer’s best friend. This award winner is creative—not live on the street just to be live, but “active live” with a point and purpose, and ability to move the story along. This reporter captures emotion with tight writing and compelling video.

I want this reporter in my corner because he shows no fear in asking the tough questions, even if the other guy could knock him into next week with one swing.
