Neighborhood featured on popular Fox 5 morning program
Rosslyn proudly showcased local restaurants, businesses and residents
One Friday morning in August (2016), Rosslyn was featured on a live broadcast of WTTG Fox 5's "Zip Trip" morning show. Throughout their usual Friday morning news broadcast, anchors frequently cut to Rosslyn to connect with neighborhood residents, leaders and restaurateurs. It was exciting to host popular news anchors Annie Yu, Tucker Barnes and Erin Como. They interviewed local residents, workers and leaders; chatted with parents and young children; and even tried a tough bootcamp workout courtesy of HIIT Nation. An estimated 1.3 million people viewed the broadcast: It is the #1 morning show in the region.
Special thanks to all who joined us, including Arlington County Board Chair Libby Garvey, A-SPAN Executive Director Kathy Sibert and Junior Reporter Meghan Watson. We're also grateful to the many Rosslyn restaurants who joined us, including several chefs who showcased their culinary creations through a special "Taste of Rosslyn" segment.
