Terry is one of the smoothest reporters I’ve ever worked with. He has mastered Washington DC and he’s a great people person in the field and in the office. He’s also fast as lightning which makes a big difference on a busy day and I enjoyed working with him and look forward to working with him again if the opportunity arises.

I had the pleasure of working wirth Terry at Conus, where I watched him consistently find stories in places where others never looked. They were always well written and always gave viewers insight into the workings of DC policy making and, through the people he included in his work, insight into the human condition. I learned a lot from Terry. This guy is a solid, reliable pro.
Terry was my colleague and counterpart for investigative reporting at CONUS. I deeply admired his reporting and his ability to get in and dig. He was also a heckuva guy to sit across from in the newsroom.

Q&A with Terry
CDs offer fixed rates and locked funds for a set term, while high-interest savings accounts provide flexibility with variable rates.
Consider risk tolerance and access needs. MMFs may offer slightly higher returns but have some risk compared to insured savings accounts.
Diversify your savings. Use CDs for stable growth, high-interest savings for liquidity and MMFs for a balance of both.
