CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman and former CNNer Daryn Kagan are featured in the current issue of Best Friends Magazine, a publication for pet owners. Excerpts from the article — titled “The Pet Beat” — about journalists who sometimes report on animal stories:
• “If I could do one genre to do day in and day out, it would be animal stories,” says Hartman. “I want people to smile, to feel good….and to feel good about the planet we live on…No person is as pure and as good as an animal.”
• Kagan says she loves her ‘good news’ website, DarynKagan.com — “I don’t feel like I’m working.” The magazine also reports that “syndication, internet, and book deals are all in the works” for Kagan in the future.
