Barbara Besteni joined the Local 10 team as Managing Editor of Local10.com in April of 2008. After graduating from Brooklyn College in New York, she began her television career at WABC-TV Eyewitness News where her passion for journalism grabbed her and never let go. From there she went to Good Morning America until the warmer climate of South Florida and the chance to be closer to her family convinced her to pack her bags and head south. Once in South Florida, Barb started her own production company which she had for 10 years until television news brought her back in. She was online video producer and Managing Editor of NBC6.net from 2000-2008. In 2004, she had the honor of being part of the NBCOLYMPICS.com team in Athens, Greece. A chance meeting with a 3 month old minature dachshund 14 years ago sparked her passion for animal advocacy.
