Over the years, Janet has covered a variety of stories from national political conventions and the NYC visit by Pope John Paul II to a number of one-on-one interviews with prominent newsmakers including America's First Lady Michelle Obama.

In addition to her anchor duties, Janet reports on the Arts. She has written and co-produced numerous half hour specials and is responsible for "Best Seat in the House" which focuses on the local arts scene.
