Jennifer York is one fortunate woman: She has two careers and she loves them both. Her primary vocation is in broadcasting. Weekday mornings, she's in the air, flying over Southern California in a helicopter, giving traffic reports from 7 to 9 a.m. "That's definitely incredible," says York, a member of "KTLA Morning News," the top-rated morning news show in Los Angeles. "It's very fulfilling to let people know what's happening, alert them to danger, or ways to save time in traffic," said York.
