Farewell to a helluva reporter

Today, Jennifer Wadsworth left the Press for greener pastures.

Jenn, as she's called in the office, was a boon to the newsroom. Not only was she a solid reporter with golden instincts and a knack for wheedling a story out of people (who could forget how she helped police unwrap the sordid tale of Melissa Huckaby, the suspected killer of 8-year-old Sandra Cantu), she was a genuine person.

To see her handle the pressure of the circus following the Huckaby stories — including the near-constant requests for interviews from Nancy Grace, Geraldo, even Dr. Phil — was to see a humble professional.

Happy trails, Jenn. The Press will miss ya.

Sad to hear this. Saw it on her Facebook post. She has a great future.
