CBS 2 News Director Joel Cheatwood says:
The events taking place in the Middle East have an enormous impact on the tri-state area and the people who live here. Many people in our area have family and friends who live in or around the Mideast, while others reside there part-time. Needless-to-say, there is a keen interest in the issues and events impacting the region. It is truly local news to the tri-state area. We are thrilled to have a reporter the caliber of Kimberly Dozier to lead our Middle East bureau. Over the years, she has reported from many of the world’s hot spots, and has been a featured contributor to some of the world’s top news organizations, risking her own safety to keep viewers informed.To read the press release, click here.
