WESH looks at foreclosures during sweeps

Our Sponsors

It’s the biggest story in our region, and probably doesn’t get as much attention as it deserves.

I’m talking about the foreclosure crisis. Starting Sunday night, WESH 2 News will begin a series of five reports on the crisis and how it is impacting Central Florida and our economy.

According to a WESH news release …

“On Sunday, reporter Jeff Lennox kicks off the series with an overview of how individual counties in our region rank when it comes to foreclosures. On Monday, anchor/reporter Aixa Diaz looks at ‘the foreclosure next door,’ a report that offers advice for people on how to deal with neighborhood eyesores that are a result of abandoned homes. Tuesday reporter Claire Metz looks at foreclosures in the courts – and why many consider Florida’s system to be less efficient than many other states’. On Wednesday, reporter Dave McDaniel introduces WESH 2 News viewers to a couple with an important lesson to share with anyone considering buying a short sale property. And on Thursday, reporter Michelle Meredith shares essential information from local real estate experts on what viewers need to know before considering foreclosure.”

Look for the reports beginning Sunday at 11 and then continuing Monday-Thursday at 6 p.m. It’s good to see what appears to be a serious news series during sweeps — a welcome break from the usual sweeps servings of restaurant inspections, crime, etc.
