Stephen Koff Was “a bit of a hellion growing up.”

From Hotline’s “Friday Feature“:

    Stephen Koff has been the DC bureau chief for the Cleveland Plain Dealer since ’98. Besides directing and participating in the bureau’s coverage of Washington, he also contributes to the paper’s Openers blog. Before coming to DC, he wrote in Cleveland for the Plain Dealer, and also reported for the St. Petersburg Times, St. Petersburg Evening Independent, and Cincinnati Magazine. But today he’s our Friday Feature:

    Where’s your hometown? What was it like growing up there?

    Cincinnati. It’s a wonderful place, with good parks and green hills, great local food (Graeter’s ice cream, Skyline Chili, LaRosa’s Pizza), Reds baseball, and more hometown spirit than should be legal. Outsiders find it terribly parochial. I was a bit of a hellion growing up, so you could say it was a good place to raise hell. (I’m respectable now.)
