LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Local celebrity Lee Pitts is the host and executive producer of his own show, "Lee Pitts Live", but his journey wasn't an easy one.

Growing up in a poor and violent neighborhood, Lee found a love for competitive swimming and even became a swimming educator.

After doing public service announcements offering swimming tips, Lee Pitts filled in as a guest talk show host on a local talk show, and 28 years later, he's still going strong.
