My youngest brother was an on air reporter for a number of years in West Virginia, Roanoke, Richmond, and finally Atlanta. He was respectful of people's privacy which gained him friendships and access otherwise refused to other reporters. When Evander Holyfield was bitten by Mike Tyson, my brother was the only reporter invited into Holyfield's home. Jay arrived by helicopter, flying over all those encamped outside the gates. Jay says their gestures indicated they were not happy. When the story went national, Jay appeared at Holyfield's side.
