Here’s the Roundup for the Week Ending February 9

By Kevin Eck 

Happy Friday to all who celebrate! In this week’s edition of stories we didn’t get to for one reason or another, we’ve been told a local anchor will appear on ABC’s 20/20 to talk about one of his stories and we see that two local stations have picked up a thread about the serious headshots at a Florida TV station.

Let’s make the sausage, or donuts, if you prefer:

Longtime ABC57 (WBND) anchor  Brian Conybeare will appear on the Friday, February 16, 2024 episode of ABC’s 20/20 at 9:00 P.M. (ET) as it re-examines a Michigan love triangle that tragically resulted in the murder of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Tyrone Hassel III. Conybeare first investigated the murder in an ABC57 News’ 30-minute special titled, “Love. Honor. Betrayal.,” which earned an Emmy Award from the Chicago Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Ultimately, Hassel’s wife and her lover were both convicted in the case. Tune in on your local ABC station to support your local colleagues.
