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

Posted By on Fri, Aug 21, 2015 at 1:54 PM

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.
