'Officer Phil' Konstantin's Main TV Page

I started working at KUSI on May 6, 2005. This was just four days after my retirement from the California Highway Patrol (August 5, 1985-May 2, 2005). I did traffic reports as a part of KUSI's morning news broadcast from May 6, 2005 to October 9, 2009. I was replaced on the air as a money saving effort by KUSI. I became KUSI's evening Assignment Editor on October 14, 2009. My last day at KUSI was May 23, 2009. KUSI is on Ch. 9 on cable in San Diego. It is broadcast in San Diego on Ch. 51. Even though I have retired from the CHP, many people call me 'Officer Phil.'

After five years, I parted company with KUSI on May 23, 2010. I have had a great time working with all of these fine people. I will miss all of the folks here. It has been a fun job. I have met lots of interesting people. Spending time with all of my co-workers and management has been a real pleasure.

My newest book:

"The Wacky World of Laws"
It was just released in May 2009.

The Wacky World of Laws is a compilation of U.S. and International Laws that are out of the ordinary. With the U.S. churning out 500,000 new laws every year and 2 million regulations annually, this book is the ideal go-to book fro everyone who wants a good laugh at the expense of our legal system. Law so often can be boring! Now with The Wacky World of Laws, you can be the hit of any water cooler conversation, and amaze your friends with precious legal nuggets.
