Barb Besteni joined the Local 10 team as Managing Editor of Local10.com in April of 2008.
After graduating from Brooklyn College in New York, Barb began her television news career at WABC-TV Eyewitness News where her passion for journalism grabbed a hold of her and wouldn't 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 video production and marketing company, which he had for almost 10 years until television news drew her back in.
A chance meeting with a 3-month-old miniature dachshund 14 years ago sparked her passion for animal advocacy.
Her other passions include travel, writing, music and fitness.
