Long-time broadcast journalist and alumnus from the University of Florida, Lou Young, paid a visit to his alma mater today (April 14, 2010). Young, who works for WCBS-TV in New York is the recipient of numerous awards, including eight Emmys. His body of work includes coverage of the invasion of Iraq, the controversial 2000 presidential election and school shootings in Littleton, Colorado among many other stories. He’s considered one of the first to begin reporting online. He’s also coauthor of the book, “The Art of Justice” about high profile trials. Young sat down in the studio with WUFT’s Donna Green-Townsend to share one of his most memorable reporting experiences.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/LouYoung.mp3]
