The first episode of FOCUS on 9-20-13 was really well done.  It continues in the well respected tradition of TEMPO.  The stories were very well reported and edited, Ms. McHugh's interviews in the studio were concise and elicited relevant comments from guests, and the reporter discussion at the end was just right.  Thank you for the effort put into this show, and I look forward to future episodes.

Laura, Brittany & Grover –Just a quick note to say “congratulations” on your outstanding premiere episode of FOCUS.  I found the show’s topics thoroughly informative and, from a human interest perspective, entertaining as well.  The format is great -- I especially liked the roundtable recap at the end.  Can’t wait for the second show!
