In this web-exclusive podcast, Brian Noonan, Cody Gough, and Roger Badesch sit down less than 24 hour after the horrific events in Orlando to discuss the media’s role in covering tragedies like mass shootings and other violent news stories. Cody passionately defends WGN Radio’s coverage of such events and does his best to distance himself from the coverage of 24-hour news networks like CNN, and Roger brings a historical perspective from his years as a newsman while Brian plays devil’s advocate and points out the pros and cons of all approaches. Hear them reflect on their role as broadcasters in helping Americans digest and move past events in the news that resonate with us all.
