TULSA, Oklahoma -

We're introducing you to another member of the News On 6 team today. We've started this new feature on NewsOn6.com so you can get to know the people who bring you the news every day.

Next up is anchor Rich Lenz. You know Rich as the man who co-anchors 6 in the Morning with LeAnne Taylor and meteorologist Alan Crone. He's been working the early-morning shift (and tormenting LeAnne), since 2007.

1. What was your first job in television news?

I was a studio cameraman at KLFY-TV in Lafayette, Louisiana, and Dick Faurot was our weatherman at the time!

2. You have 15 minutes of free time, what do you do?

I would pick up my guitar and try to fine tune the latest song I’m trying to write.

3. What's in the console of your car?

Shades, lip balm, 32 cents in loose change.

4. What's your hidden talent?

I love to write and record original music.

5. What was your high school mascot?

The Scouts and the Blue Wave (I moved from Lake Forest, Illinois to Darien, Connecticut after my sophomore year).

6. How would you describe Tulsa to someone who's never been here?

Very friendly, a little hip and a great place to raise your kids.

Follow Rich on Facebook and Twitter.
