Scene Podcast: The Nightcrawler of Lorain, 19 Action News Drops the Action News, and Cleveland Talks About the Lakefront (Again)

This week, host Craig Lyndall sat down with staff writer Sam Allard to hit the week's newsiest news.

- Our cover story on Paul Pelton, the so-called Nightcrawler of Lorain who videotaped a grisly crash scene involving two teens, who the media painted as a man who wanted to sell the footage to local TV stations, and the true story behind the headlines.

- 19 Actions News' announcement that the station will drop the action news format and focus on more quality (and positive) journalistic efforts.

- The wide-ranging discussion, hosted by the City Club, on the future of the lakefront in Cleveland, which is something we always seem to talk about but never get any action on.
