Central Pennsylvania is home. This is where I grew up; went to school; attended college, and eventually returned to start a family. After working at several TV stations around the country I returned to Central Pennsylvania when FOX43 News debuted in 1994. I currently anchor the weekday 4pm, 5pm and 10pm newscasts. I graduated from Shippensburg University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. After graduation I worked for TV stations WOAY in West Virginia; WFMZ in Allentown; WPBF in Florida; WHP in Harrisburg; and KMOV in St. Louis. I love broadcasting and journalism. From the Space Shuttle program in Florida, to the Berlin Wall coming down in Germany, to covering Presidential candidates, I’ve had the great fortune of reporting really exciting news events over the past 30 years. I’ve been lucky enough to win a number of journalism awards, including Emmy awards and nominations. Shippensburg University’s Communications/Journalism Department also named me the Outstanding Alumnus Award for professional achievement.
Away from work I can’t sit still. Any chance I get you’ll find me on the back roads and highways on my Harley. I’ve been riding since the age of 16. It’s my passion. I enjoy golf. Golf doesn’t enjoy me. The Eagle Scout in me still comes through with my love of camping, backpacking and hiking in the great outdoors. Each year you’ll find the Forrester clan camping or hiking in the woods in some beautiful location. My personal life is largely defined by my beautiful wife and two teenage children. We’re constantly on the go from one activity to the next!
I try to give back to the community as much as possible through participation in many charitable events. I also serve on a number executive boards including: Executive Board of the New Birth of Freedom Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The Executive Board of America’s 9/11 Foundation. The advisory board of both Shippensburg University’s College of Arts and Sciences and Communications/Journalism Department.
