"The Reporter" scoops a look at Fort Wayne in the '70's

Fort Wayne trial attorney Mark Paul Smith has published a new autobiographical novel, this time chronicling his life as a young reporter at the Journal Gazette in the 1970's.

His book, aptly called "The Reporter," provides a walk down memory lane for Boomers, and an entertaining insight into that era for younger generations and non-native residents.

So much of the action takes place in the iconic downtown restaurant, Henry's, that Mark considers it to be a main character in the story.

For insight on that slice of local history, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with Smith to talk about his adventures on that city beat.
