A match made in media heaven

Drumm_WeddingIlyssa Trussel and Joe Drumm covered a lot of stories together but their favorite is the one that didn’t make the evening news – their personal love story.
Trussel came to Jacksonville in 2007 as a reporter for Action News where Drumm was working as a videographer. Drumm says he had his eye on the blonde reporter right away, even though she was focused on her new job.
A few days after Trussel started at the station, the two were paired up to cover a story in Brunswick, GA. Trussel said she recalls being nervous because they were the lead story at 5 p.m. Drumm, a Philadelphia native who is known his care-free and laid back personality, had a way of putting Trussel’s mind at ease while standing on the other side of the camera. For several months the two were nothing more than co-workers and friends. But eventually, their relationship blossomed into something more romantic, and Drumm eventually asked his co-worker on a date.
Trussel now works in Marketing and Communications at St. Vincent’s HealthCare. Drumm is still in the TV news business and works as a special projects videographer for WJXT, Channel 4 News. The two live on the Southside and make the drive to San Marco and Riverside each day.  They exchanged vows during a seaside ceremony at Serenata Beach Club in South Ponte Vedra Beach on April 13 and the Drumms honeymooned in Hawaii.
