The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – or NOAA – has its Pacific Marine Operations Center in the coastal city of Newport, Oregon. The facility supports NOAA's seafaring survey vessels and works with a unique team of scientists, personnel, and civilians in carrying out a diverse array of missions. The facility also serves as headquarters for the national management of the NOAA fleet. Overseeing marine operations is Captain Todd Bridgeman, who’s been with NOAA for 24 years.

KLCC's Brian Bull recently met with Bridgeman, during KLCC's ongoing 50th Anniversary Road Tour. Bull began by asking Captain Bridgeman to summarize the Newport facility and operations.
