Will eventually landed a job as the "helicopter guy" (better known as "Reporter in the Sky") on FOX-11's Good Day LA morning show, where he covered fires, police pursuits and the occasional stranded nude hiker. He also wrote & produced entertainment news, and fronted numerous live and produced features/lifestyle pieces. In addition to working with 3 Alliance to develop upcoming projects (including creating project such as: Going for Good), Will is known to Los Angeles audiences as the morning reporter & aerial photographer in KNBC's News Chopper 4, as well as nationally as the narrator for The Countdown on Reelz Channel.
