Over the 10 plus years I've worked with Howard I have never walked away from one of his stories wanting more. His ability to report at a level that surpasses the expectations of viewers and informs to a degree of overwhelming results are what any news organization fights for on a daily basis. This is tried and true, in the trenches reporting; with perspectives gained and changed. And what I love the most about his work and performance is its definitive nature. When you hear the sound of his voice and absorb the written style, you know instantly it's Howard. Those words are as true now as they were the first time I watched one of his pieces. When reporter Howard Nathan made plans to follow his wife to Colorado for her new job, he got the opportunity to come onboard to work with CBS 4 in Denver. It was the perfect opportunity to devote some time to his family and keep his foot in the door of news. It's been a great experience.
As an award-winning reporter, Howard joined the CBS4 News team from WDTN-TV in Dayton, Ohio, where he was a broadcast journalist for 16 years, earning four Emmy Awards, an Associated Press Award for Ohio's best reporter and was honored by State of Ohio House of Representatives with a community service award based on a continuing series of reports on a health insurance issue involving coverage for a little girl with a severe food allergy.
Howard was born in New York City and began his broadcast journalism career in radio in New Jersey and Connecticut before making the switch to television in 1986. His first job on TV was at WTHI-TV in Terre Haute, Ind., where he worked for four years before moving to WDTN-TV in Dayton, Ohio where he served as a reporter until joining CBS4.
