When I was a teenager my family went on an epic road trip that made an impression on me. Twenty-five states in thirty days. Fast forward to my days here at ABC4 News and I’ve had a blast being the field producer for something called the “Good4Utah Road Tour.” I’ve visited all but ten of the forty-four Utah State Parks.
Jessop’s Journeys is a virtual field trip where I visit “people, places and things you might not know about.” Where are we going to go? Who knows? We might go see how a hat is made one week and then go make chocolates the next week.

In addition to “Jessop’s Journeys”, I have the honor of doing a number of series on ABC4 Utah:
“Jessop’s Journal” is something special when it comes to broadcast news. I have the honor of being able to do longer in-depth interviews that you don’t normally see with people from all walks of life. Jessop’s Journal can be seen on-demand at www.ABC4.com/Journal and are made possible by the generous support of Rustico , Tailor Cooperative , JW Custom Hats and Ogden’s Own Distillery .
In a world that sometimes seems cold and aloof, do you need a shot of hope and optimism? There are people out their making a difference. These stories deserve to be told. These are “Doug Jessop’s Utah Caring Stories” on-demand at www.abc4.com/caring
A big shout out goes to my collaborator, Ed Wilets, who does a great job as my videographer/editor for all my stories. Your feedback is always welcome.
I strongly feel that “stories have power”. Chances are that if you are going through something, that someone else probably has as well. The shared experiences we humans have can help each other. That my friend makes the point that stories “help us understand each other.”
You don’t have to agree with everyone, but in my opinion, if people would take more time getting to knowing more about others and where they are coming from, we just might find out that we have more similarities than differences.
