Kira's Story

"From acting, to painting, to haircutting, I've worked with almost every kind of art medium there is. My favorite medium these days is photography and videography.

In 2018, I earned my Video Production Technologies degree from Pellissippi State, and I was awarded the Most Outstanding Graduate Award for my department! One requirement to graduate was to intern at a local production company, so I interned at Red Arrow Industries for a few months editing tv shows for the fyi network.

After college, I worked at a media outlet in Pigeon Forge where I co-hosted and produced a morning show with Frank Murphy. We interviewed lots of really awesome people like Paula Deen, and we visited almost every attraction in town.

That job was great until COVID happened. As you can imagine, trying to have a media outlet about a tourist town is difficult when there's no tourism happening. So, I left that company and started working for NRWO full time!

In February 2020, I went to the Daytona 500 where I filmed NASCAR driver, Chad Finchum. I've also made videos for attorneys, night clubs, realtors, and various other companies. I look forward to helping you or your business present your best image to the world."

David's Story

"The very beginning starts with me writing for my high school newspaper, but my first real splash into the television and photography business began as a sports intern with WVLT news, the CBS affiliate in Knoxville Tennessee. I was soon hired on full time and spent six years at the station working several jobs from assignment manager, photographer, producer and eventually on-air reporting. Through these jobs, I covered various stories across East Tennessee with both local and national interest. I won an Emmy for my contributions to my station’s continuous coverage during the 2016 Gatlinburg wildfires. I was also twice Emmy nominated as a producer for work I did as the 11:00pm newscast lead producer with Ted Hall and Amanda Hara. 

I’ve covered everything from crime, sports and heart warming feature stories. I’ve interviewed some pretty interesting folks over the years, from Gene Simmons, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Kyle Busch, Sonny Perdue, Jimmy Haslam, Morgan Evans, Francsesca Amiker and many more.

I now work as a field producer for TheHiveTv and Jupiter Entertainment. My main job is to coordinate and conduct interviews for the shows Fatal Attraction (TvONE) For My Man (TvONE) and Snapped: Killer Couples (Oxygen). My main job is to interview family members who’ve lost loved ones to domestic violence, the detectives that solve the cases, and the prosecutors that bring the justice. 

For me, storytelling is a joy. Whether it be for a major network or a small town business, I love helping you share your message in a way that’s unique to you!"
