Last night, a man in Sandy pointed a handgun at police officers. To protect themselves, those officers took his life.

I heard about this story the same way as many of you--on KSL Newsradio. Sitting in the back of the traffic plane, I could see the emergency vehicles, but I wasn't sure what was happening. I realized then how difficult it is to stay on top of the news.

As a producer, I normally sit in the newsroom surrounded by reporters, other producers, a news director, police scanners, and the TV assignment desk. When something happens, I hear about it. We research. We interview.

But in the traffic plane, trying my best to keep KSL listeners updated on the roadways based on what I see with my own eyes, it's different. I'm like the people stuck in traffic. Not only do I want to stay on top of the news, but I'm also trying to find out why there is so much traffic. What's the problem on the South-Side Belt? When will this accident be cleared up? Where does the slowing on northbound I-15 start?

For the news, I just have to rely on the rest of the KSL Newsradio team.
