National media arrives in Jacksonville for Michael Dunn trial

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Michael Dunn jury arrived at the hotel Thursday morning that they will call home until a verdict is reached.

At the same time national media arrived at the muddy lot known as "media city."

The dirt lot located at the corner of Adams Street and Broad Street downtown buzzed with activity as crews strung thousands of feet of cables, put up dozens of light stands and scaffolding was added to the stage constructed earlier in the week.

NBC and CNN pulled up and parked the massive TV trucks they will work out of for at least the next seven days.

The New York Times, the Associated Press and Orlando's Fox 35 arrived earlier in the week along with Jacksonville's local media including, First Coast News WAWS/WTEV, WOKV, WJXT and the Florida Times Union.

Muddy media city has its own bathrooms and food trucks have been arriving mid-morning daily to pass out menus to media crews working 12 hour plus days.

More national media outlets are expected to arrive throughout the day.
