SC Lede: On Assignment — Finding Florida Man

20190819_sc_lede_florida_man.jpg

On this special edition of the South Carolina Lede, we investigate the origins of one of the country's most famous folk figures: Florida Man. While attending a podcast conference in Orlando, FL, Lede host Gavin Jackson and producer A.T. Shire speak with Florida natives and transplants alike to find out how and why crazy news stories from the Sunshine State make headlines around the world.

Then, South Carolina Public Radio's Russ McKinney quizzes Gavin about Florida history in this week's Did You Know segment.

Gavin Jackson graduated with a visual journalism degree from Kent State University in 2008 and has been in the news industry ever since. He has worked at newspapers in Ohio, Louisiana and most recently in South Carolina at the Florence Morning News and Charleston Post and Courier.
