KMVT Explains Suicide Policy to Viewers

Reporting on a rise in local suicides, KMVT took time to explain its policy on covering suicides (video above). Like most stations, the Twin Falls, ID CBS-affiliate has a specific policy about reporting on suicides.

“As a rule of thumb, we do not report on suicides, however, we have guidelines we follow,” KMVT news director Joe Martin told viewers. “For example, if it’s a public figure or puts the public in danger then we determine if we report on it.”

The station also posted its policy on its website.
