It's an old story: Struggling musician works a day job to supplement the meager wages earned while playing late-night club dates. Bassist Jennifer York is no exception. But her day job starts when most after-hours jazz clubs are still going strong. She's up at 4:30 a.m., gathering her wits and her makeup. She arrives at Van Nuys airport by 5:15 and, by 5:30, as the airborne traffic reporter for KTLA Channel 5 News, York, her cameraman and the pilot are lifting off in Skycam 5.
