Former NYPD Blue-star-turned-TV-reporter Andrea Thompson's contract with KRQE(TV) Albuquerque was to have run out this month, but she now plans to stay on at least another year. "I asked if I could stay on," she said. "I know I have a lot to learn, and this is the perfect place to learn." Management agreed.
Thompson, who participated in a panel on stalking at the Radio-Television News Directors Association convention in Minneapolis-she was a stalking victim while an actress-said that, despite 20 years in Hollywood, she felt more at home among her new journalist peers. "And more fulfilled," she added. Among her story topics have been many social issues and law enforcement. "I get along well with cops," she said.
