FOX 2’s Betsey Bruce profiled by Mizzou for career bookended by protests
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Looking back to my college work on the Mizzou student newspaper ( “The Maneater” of course named after MU’s maneating tiger mascot… ) I am wondering what are the odds that I would began my career covering serious student protests over free speech issues.
It began with protests over the Vietnam war. Now more than 40 years later, I have spent a year reporting the impact of the Ferguson Movement. The protests that came with it were both peaceful and violent.
I cannot imagine any other career that would give me such a seat in the middle of history and the chance to share what I learn with others.
