He also was part of the team that won Best Spot News and Best Continuing Coverage awards from the Associated Press and the RTDNA.
Before moving to South Bend, Samuel's first full time position was with WECT, WSFA 12's Raycom sister station in Wilmington, North Carolina. There he won a "Best Spot News" Award from the Radio and Television News Directors Association of the Carolinas.
Samuel began his career as a reporter during a fellowship at KSNT in Topeka, Kansas. He is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
