Asher Fusco (Reporter/Web producer)
I started working as a Web producer and overnight reporter for LJWorld.com in March 2009. My duties include keeping the Web site up and running smoothly and covering breaking news during overnight shifts.
I am a graduate of Kansas University, where I got my start in journalism covering KU and high school athletics at the Topeka Capital-Journal.
Away from the News Center, I spend most of my time at the gym, creating music or exploring Lawrence.
