Oh yes, it is true! CNN's senior political correspondent, Brianna Keilar, got her feet wet working right here in Yakima TV and radio!

When I first moved to Yakima in March 2002, Brianna was pulling double duty as both a TV reporter on KIMA and a morning radio co-host on 107.3 KFFM.

We hung out a few times in Yakima and Ellensburg, and our boss at the time, Downtown Billy Brown, got us backstage to meet the band No Doubt! That was a lot of fun!

It makes me beam with pride to see how Brianna has worked her buns off to move her way from MTVu, to CBS News, and now on to be senior political correspondent for CNN. This week, she scored a coveted one-on-one interview with former first lady, U.S. senator, Secretary of State and current Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

You go, girl!
