WFSU’s Mike Plummer joins some of the 2016 Great Florida Cattle Drive riders as they gather for a weekend to reinforce their bond. The upcoming 2021 Florida Cattle Drive is on their minds and their aim is to keep their cow hunter family motivated for that historic event. We hear from Florida cattle folks like Lynn and Imogene Yarborough, Frank Batey, and expert cow whip maker K.J. Smith.
Mike Plummer is a content producer and editor for television at WFSU Public Media. He spent 25 years in commercial television as an art director, commercial director, promotion manager, station manager and creative services director before coming to WFSU in 2008. Mike likes to find the “unusual” or “out of the ordinary” stories in our Local Routes. He says the best part of his job is getting to know people he would otherwise probably not get a chance to meet. Mike is widowed, has two terriers named Truman and Dexter, and is constantly at war with the vines growing in his backyard.
