Out in the field

andy conte 06As an investigative reporter, I often work at a computer screen going over data or talking with sources on the phone. But you never know.

It was interesting then recently to get out into the field for a day with photographer Evan Sanders. We were covering a story about the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General executing a search warrant at a monastery near Hollidaysburg.

It was a chance to utilize the modern “newsroom” — with a mobile phone in hand (actually two of them) and a laptop computer on my lap.
