Although my background for the last two decades (my entire adult life, I am not THAT old) has been spent in radio, I have always been an Uber fan of NBC. I don't know about your family but ours have stuck to one network, and it has always been NBC. We are very lucky that the local affiliate WESH 2 (Orlando) that is as great, and I have been watching it as long as I can remember.
I was really pleased when I received an email from Kevin, WESH Digital Media Manager inviting me to a Tweetup that WESH-TV was hosting at their studios in Winter Park.
The invite promised a behind-the-scenes look at the WESH 2 studios during Sunrise and the chance to meet the people you see on TV.

I am sure I drove Bob Longo, WESH's News Director crazy with all my nerdy questions, primarily on the logistics of some of the national reporters and how they personalize each news report every morning. Nerdy things that only fascinate me for sure!
We talked about really cool ways that WESH lets their viewers help with the news via the U-Local platform. U-Local is a place to share videos, audio, photos, and stories with the community.
After the studio tour, we had a chance to talk to Stuart Moore, who was out on assignment! He is a Seminole which made me like him even more!
