It’s a fun chance to highlight some of the people who work at the Mail Tribune and the great community we cover.
Medford, OR (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
The Mail Tribune has launched a new web series, Dan & Dave Do Stuff, featuring two journalists exploring Southern Oregon.
Sports reporter Dan Jones and copy editor Dave Sager will take on challenges across the Rogue Valley and their adventures will be captured in short videos by videographers Ryan Pfeil and Mandy Valencia.
Already they have tried to eat 30 tacos in 30 minutes at a Phoenix restaurant, had their eyebrows shaped up at a Medford salon and taken on a firefighters’ fitness challenge at a Jackson County fire district. They are looking for challenges from businesses and individuals that will test their mettle and display some of the great things about living in Southern Oregon.
Producers want to push Dan and Dave to do things they’ve never done before, while also highlighting skills that some people, such as firefighters, use every day.
Community members can send in ideas for stuff Dan and Dave can do. In fact, that’s how the eyebrow makeover came about. Tackling these tasks, the guys will learn more about themselves and the region.
“It’s a fun chance to highlight some of the people who work at the Mail Tribune and the great community we cover,” said Anita Burke, Web editor at the Mail Tribune. “We’re working hard to connect in new ways, including with these web videos and on Facebook and Twitter.”
