Welcome Jesse

I'd be curious to know how or why you go from Phoenix, LA, and Chicago to Peoria. No offense to Peoria TV stations, but going from three major top markets (include two of the top three) to Peoria seems like a major step backwards unless there's a good reason to (family in the area, took time off and trying to get the feet wet again, etc...).

just a guess, but I know people who've done it because they weren't producers in those big markets...they were AP's or writers. The only way to get that producing experience is to go back to a small market and work your way back up like reporters have to do.

I heard he long wanted a chance to be a part of the prestigious Live at Five franchise. He obviously jumped at the opportunity when it came.

i hear he wants to be a reporter and the big markets won't let him.

I haven't met Jesse yet, but if his goal is to become a reporter and he's using his producer experience to get a foot in the door, more power to him. He's at a station where they have a good track record in giving people a chance.
