Ray RatliffRay Ratliff joined WPBT2 in 2003 after graduating from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale with a degree in Television Production. As a graphic designer Ratliff is responsible for the 2D and 3D content for many of our award-winning programs and documentaries such as Wild Florida, Check Please! South Florida, Mi Colombia, and New Florida. The new look and feel of WPBT2 and the Nightly Business Report is the direct result of Ratliff’s hard work and creativity while working with a team of graphic designers to develop the new logos, color, graphics and overall look. Ratliff enjoys traveling; trying new and exotic – and some not so exotic cuisines, exploring new cultures and customs searching for new ideas to bring back and use in his projects here at WPBT2. Ratliff also enjoys gardening and is an avid grower of rare and unusual plants such as orchids, bamboos, aquatic and carnivorous plants and palms to name a few.
