MOUNT VERNON — WTTE Fox 28 visited Knox County on Monday. Reporter Johnny DiLoretto and cameraman Rodney Middendorf traveled the central Knox County area, visiting places such as The Alcove, Public Square, the Woodward Opera House, the Knox County Historical Society Museum and the Kokosing Gap Trail.
The crew was shown tourist spots around the county by Pat and Sandy Crow of the Knox County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“I was impressed about how interested they were on the subject matter that we were dealing with, and that is not always the case when a crew like that comes in,” said Pat Crow, who did not find out that the crew was going to visit until Saturday. “I think they did their best to enhance what we had in the format they were trying to put it together in.”
“Rodney and I cover a wide variety of things, whether it be events, processes like how they make footballs and stuff like that,” said DiLoretto. “Also, we like to get out into some of the outlying communities and show our viewers that this is a really cool place to visit if you haven’t.
“Maybe you passed through Mount Vernon, but you didn’t know that chewing gum was invented here,” DiLoretto said. “Basically what we are doing here is having fun and showing our viewers what there is to do and see here.”
Seven two-minute segments were shown on Fox 28 during the Good Morning Columbus show, this morning.
