Tough Stuff

Today I had a taste of what is one of the worst parts of being a reporter: talking to a family member of a recently deceased person on camera.

I try to write this with as much humility as possible.

The deaths occurred about three weeks ago, and Newswatch 12 reporter, Steven Sandberg, was able to talk to the uncle of an 18-year-old girl who was killed in a car crash. Today, the driver of the car that the girl was in was charged with manslaughter. I was assigned to the story and was asked to follow up with the uncle and get some reaction from him on camera.

There's a lot more to the story, here.
