Marc Middleton, who is leaving WESH at the end of the month after 18 years at the station, is teaming up with former Channel 2 anchor Andrea Coudriet to form a media relations company.
Middleton Coudriet Media Group already has its first client â€”Tavistock Cup, the annual Isleworth vs. Lake Nona golf competition that is televised internationally on The Golf Channel.
"We are thrilled to be working with an internationally respected company like the Tavistock Group," Middleton said in a news release. "We feel like we’ve made a hole in one off the first tee."
