Beyond the deadline urgency of breaking news, Duffy Jennings also thrives on feature stories. He enjoys writing about celebrities, athletes and other compelling personalities, social trends, small town controversies and historical events.

People and topics he’s written about include Motown star Smokey Robinson, actor Adam Goldberg, NBC golf announcer Roger Maltbie, disco fever, singles bars, a gay wedding in 1971 and a retrospective on the fortunes and failures of his high school classmates.
