Intersection: Sunshine Week, Students Helping Puerto Rico & Eugene Snowden


For more than a decade, Sunshine week has highlighted and celebrated public access to information. All this week WMFE has been been exploring how Florida’s sunshine laws work in a series called Here Comes the Sun.

So how do freedom of information laws help reporters and you in Florida? We’ll talk to reporters and the First Amendment Foundation.

Then, students from Orlando head to Puerto Rico for Spring Break. They’re visiting schools and bringing supplies, giving back to a community still getting back on its feet after Hurricane Maria.

And every Wednesday, Eugene Snowden brings his unique style of blues to Lil Indies in downtown Orlando. The host of Ten Pints of Truth joins Intersection to perform and shares stories from his musical journey and how he’s keeping the spirit of blues alive with his musical residency.

Brendan Byrne is WMFE's Assistant News Director, managing the day-to-day operations of the WMFE newsroom, editing daily news stories, and managing WMFE's internship program.<br/><br/>Byrne also hosts WMFE's weekly radio show and podcast "Are We There Yet?" which explores human space exploration.
