A.J.’s investigation Double Billing the Badge uncovered how almost every law enforcement agency in Minnesota had been ripped off for years on their acquisition of squad cars in a sophisticated double billing scheme that led to a criminal swindling conviction and over a million dollars being refunded. That reporting enabled A.J. to earn his first Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award – often referred to as the Pulitzer Prize for broadcasters.

A.J. commenced his journalism profession as a radio reporter for WSYR in Syracuse, N.Y. From there he jumped to TV at WSTM also in Syracuse and afterward moved to WRIC in Richmond, Virginia. He arrived at KARE after more than 10 years working in Virginia.
