Last week, Patrick Higgins, Magen Howard, and Maura Gallagher of the Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives communications staff visited the WSYX ABC 6 newsroom for a tour.

They learned how Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives and member co-ops can enhance media relations. The team joined anchor Terri Sullivan’s morning editorial meeting and watched as Cameron Fontana and Shawn Ireland of Good Day Marketplace went “live.”

The trio also got to try their hands with weather forecast technology, with help from meteorologist Marshall McPeek.
