Greetings — I’m John White and I’m a News Assignment Editor at Q13 FOX News.

I’ve been fortunate to have lived and worked in some great places: New York, San Francisco and Seatlle.

And despite the regional and cultural differences I’ve found that people, for the most part, are the same — they have the same wants, needs and desires.

As for me, I love music, the arts, classic movies, astronomy and comedy. I like to travel and I’m a novice foodie. Oh, and I’ve got a wry sense of humor.
