Syesha Mercado was voted off the show Wednesday night. See how the office pools are fairing.
Saw this on the Wall Street Journal site.
One of The Oklahoman’s business reporters, Don Mecoy, approached me with a video idea last week. He and his fellow reporters from the Biz desk were working on alternate methods of getting to work stories. With gas prices high, people have options: bike, bus, walk (ok, maybe not walk) and other stuff.
David Jones and Kyle Roberts shot Mecoy as he rode to work, about 10 miles. Stafford took a hand held camera on the bus as he rode from Edmond to downtown – past The Oklahoman’s office – to catch the right ride to the office.
Kyle edited together a classic piece. Mecoy and Stafford were great sports and good to work with. It’s not your routine gas price package.

Ride your bike to work week. The Oklahoman’s Don Mecoy did just that yesterday. And we followed him with cameras. His fellow business reporter Jim Stafford rode the bus. See their rides to work online at NewsOK.
