- Here is a video link to one of here stories that I'm pretty sure she had a photog on. It's a sweeps piece about vanity license plates.

Backpack Journalist Heidi McGuire is making the jump from WFMY in Greensboro take a job at one of the best Photography driven shops there is, KUSA in Denver, both of which are owned by Gannett.
Last year I showed you the pictures of Heidi while she was out and about as a BackPack Journalist, shooting her own video and doing her own reports. She has apparently mastered the task of shooting, interviewing, writing and reporting the news without any help from a camera toting cohort.
According to The Denver Post Heidi will be doing the same solo work at KUSA.
The Photography Staff at KUSA has brought home the NPPA Station of the Year Award in 1984, 1986, 1987, 1990, 1992, 1997, 1998 and 2000.
I always thought Heidi did a great job here in Greensboro running the streets wielding her own weapon of Mass Production, but I never would have figured that she'd continue doing it, especially in that market at that station!
But it kind of makes sense. Part of what makes Denver and KUSA such a strong Photographry driven Market is the fact that Photojournalists there have always been willing and able to produce their own work, whether producing photo essays or using their station's professional voices to read their stories.
I wish Heidi the best of luck in her new endeavor!
