There were some black bear sightings down in Streetsboro recently and Fox 8 dispatched Melissa Reid to get the hard-hitting story. The bears probably aren't hungry for humans, she wants us to know while standing in the middle of a bunch of foliage for some reason.
It's not exactly Emmy-worthy work here, but the end product put together by the team at WJW is a big step up for the local station, most notably in that they didn't resort to using a fake cardboard bear to illustrate the action. Hearty congratulations are in order. Steps are being taken in the right direction, guys. Good job.
