In February, reporter Amy Wilson and I took a day-long road trip into Western Kentucky to see how folks were coping two weeks after what was perhaps the worst ice storm in modern history.
It’s a bit of a departure from what I usually produce on a news assignment. The editors came to Amy and said “Take David and go to Western Kentucky and do what you do.”
We weren’t exactly sure what that meant. But we decided that the drive, the people, the journey would be the story, no matter what we found – the story would present itself. And it did. It’s an unconventional piece for a very unconventional day.
