His first television job was at the age of 18 at KTVX in Salt Lake City where he was that station's last-ever projectionist.

As a reporter/anchor Alan has had the opportunity to meet and interview numerous state and national figures, from politics to business to entertainment, but he most enjoys telling the stories of ordinary folks who have extraordinary experiences to share.
