Little Rock, Ark. news director Austin Kellerman is fed up and looking for solutions after two toddlers were shot to death within weeks of each other.
Under the headline Two Toddlers. Two Lives. Two Much, Kellerman wrote a commentary saying he’s aware that his position as newsroom leader of a local station gives him a powerful voice in the community, a voice he wants to use as “a conduit for change.”
“It can’t just be a story or two. A special broadcast isn’t enough,” says Kellerman. “A typical town hall meeting won’t do the trick. It needs to be something with the potential to make a long-term impact, bring justice to affect families, and keep this from happening in the future.”
He’s asking for solutions from anyone who wants to add their voice. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
