A Recap of Our January MCOL Video Reports

mcolThe first month of the new year is already in the books and it’s been a busy start of the year for the web team at MyMCMedia. We produced 14 Montgomery Channel on Location (MCOL) video segments for Montgomery Channel 21.

Our most watched video online was produced by Krista Brick and it spotlighted three teens who who are competing on the world level in Elite Acro Gymnastics.  Another popular video was a report on county firefighters training for an ice rescue at a frozen pond and warning residents to stay off the ice this winter.

I also interviewed a Silver Spring man who is in recovery for heroin addiction at the Avery Road Treatment Center as we learned that heroin deaths are on the rise across the state and in Montgomery County.

Aline Barros interviewed a Silver Spring mom who made national news because she allowed her kids to walk home unaccompanied.
