This semester, UMD journalism student Jamie Merideth has been working at Perfect Duluth Day on a series of interviews with people at work. Monday through Thursday of this week, we’ll present four videos that profile five people and their jobs.

You’ll be seeing more of Jamie’s work around town, she’s employed at WDIO-TV now and will be managing editor of the UMD Statesman in the fall.

This first video is with Mark Bartel of Frost River. Filmed at Frost River’s store and manufacturing facility at 1910 West Superior Street, Duluth.

Thanks to all the people who took time to talk with us, and to the local musicians who gave permission to use their songs in these videos.
