News Force Team
When the Nationwide News Network was formed this year to provide news service to independent television stations across the country, six news veterans were hired from various stations throughout the United States to staff the evening News Force Team. Can you determine each News Force staff member's full name (one first name is Maria), his or her job on the team, and the station and city from which he or she came to the team (one came from WCIL-TV, and one city is Miami)?
