“I didn’t go to school for journalism and was self-taught with the help of the great people at News 2. During my time I have won an Emmy, a Murrow, and several AP awards. The best part of my job is meeting the different people in middle Tennessee and telling their stories,” said Barlar.

“I’m glad God has blessed me by allowing me to do what I have done while here,” said Barlar.
