Had fun visiting our local NBC affiliate for their first #WLWTMeetup  Here's a slide show detailing the events. The behind the scenes tour was great - as were the staff. My kids enjoyed it even more than I did. 
On July 29, WLWT News 5 hosted its first ever #WLWTmeetup! About 20 @WLWT followers got a behind-the-scenes look at the studio and newsroom. Follow @WLWT for your chance to attend the next #WLWTmeetup.

I'm a fully-caffeinated, passionate pragmatist. Not to mention, in random order, a marketing geek, social media experiment, a something person, unabashadly proud Cincinnati native, a part-time blogger and presenter, but a full time/overtime/time of my life Dad.

Thanks for stopping by! -- Kevin Dugan

I blog quite a bit. The Bad Pitch Blog and Strategic Public Relations are the ones I've been writing for the longest. But I'm also editor in chief at Media Is Power. Full Disclosure: My Google Dopplegangers kick even more ass than me. (http://www.und.com/sports/m-lacros/mtt/dugan_kevin01.html) and (http://www.madanthonycafe.com/dugiesoon.html)
