    Sad. Wishing peace and comfort to the family.

    Is there a TLS policy not to give the location of certain news events? I find it odd that many of your reports omit locations from reporting. Likewise, videos and photos posted are often tight shots that don’t show enough of the area to adequately depict where the event is taking place. What’s the story?

  • TLS 28 to Truth Laser says:

    Hey @TruthLaser, the reason for not writing the locations in the initial alert when there is a story is because it is not necessary for there to be a crowd of people piling up to see the scene when the story is still fresh and active, however an accident or fire or something which is urgent for people to be aware of trafficwise it is usually publicized right away.
