Alan Jennings speaks with Morning Call reporter Riley Yates. For readers of the Lehigh Valley newspaper, Yates may be a familiar name. He is the reporter who covers Northampton County’s courts, but there are many other fascinating aspects of Yates' life in addition to his work as a journalist.

Yates' early years were spent living on an island off the coast of Alaska without electricity. He eventually found his way to some top universities where he got his journalism training. Yates is also one of the best chess players in the country.
