Near her car, which was found in the parking lot of her apartment building, police found evidence of a struggle.
Swanson, who came to Orlando from Seattle in 2011, said family reasons were behind the decision to leave. “Gaard’s family lives in Seattle.

He’s well liked in the newsroom.”

On some Bonten stations, like KECI and KCFW in Missoula, Mont., viewers are being warned about the possibility of a service interruption. “We are simply advising customers that this could happen so they’re not surprised or caught unprepared if they want to prepare,” Richard Reingold, vice president and general manager of Bonten’s Montana stations, told the Missoulian.
The current carriage agreement expires December 8. Bonten Media says “good faith negotiations” are continuing.

Cameron was a great young man who had a passion for shooting,” KJRH chief photographer Phil Willette wrote in an email to station staffers. “…As his shift consisted mostly of recording events that don’t usually find people at their best, Cameron carried himself professionally and more importantly, he possessed an empathy and sensitivity for the people he was covering. I liked that about him. Here was a guy who would treat everyone with respect at some pretty hairy times. That’s a trait you can’t teach anyone and he was wise beyond his years for having that gift.”
