Here’s an update on two of WESH’s May sweeps projects:

Starting Thursday, meteorologist Tony Mainolfi will forecast the weather from a different location along the Brevard, Volusia and Flagler county coasts during a 20-day, 20-location event. In his live broadcasts in WESH’s 4-6:30 p.m. newscasts, Mainolfi will feature stories on the people and places he visits in addition to providing the daily forecasts.

"It’s important for us to get out of the studio and explore how our communities are impacted by weather, as we prepare for the upcoming hurricane season," WESH News Director Barbara Maushard said.

Starting Monday, a monthlong weight-loss series is the feature its WESH’s Sunrise and CW18 morning shows. Dieters will be split into two teams and will follow either South Beach or Atkins weight-loss programs. Participants will be monitored by WESH 2 News medical reporter Dr. Todd Husty, who will also provide helpful and healthful information.

Viewers can follow each dieter’s progress throughout May. The dieters will share their stories, their frustrations and their secrets to success. Viewers will also learn how men and women respond differently to South Beach and Atkins diets.

According to Maushard, "these are real people with real stories. Viewers will be able to relate to these folks, cheer them on, and hopefully learn something about how to best lose weight."
