Web

As Hurricane Katrina approached New Orleans, two newsmen sat in a television studio, calmly talking to viewers about the storm. They were not the only broadcast journalists in the city — networks and cable news outlets had sent reporters.

But these two men were not visitors. They were news anchors at WDSU-TV, a station based in New Orleans. And although they were professional, composed and even managed a bit of self-deprecating humor, the fact that this was happening to the city where they lived and worked heightened the emotion of the broadcast.

Full Story.
