I most recently came from Valdosta, Georgia. There, I was a Multi Media Journalist and Bureau Chief for the CBS station there called WCTV. I have also worked in Hong Kong as well as New York City for Bloomberg TV. Prior to that, I have worked on five documentaries for the award-winning “America Undercover” series on HBO. In 2002, I worked as a Senior Production Associate on the Emmy award-winning film “Crank: Made in America”, for which he shot on location in Iowa interviewing and filming methamphetamine drug addicts, incarcerated dealers, and police officers. I have also personally worked with Kim Bassinger, the Dalai Lama, William Styron, and Mike Wallace on various documentary films over the past several years. I have also appeared on camera as well for MTV International and the National Geographic Channel. I love the outdoors and music. If you have a wild, weird or wonderful story please email me at eyates@fox43.com. I would love to hear from you!!
