Steve Gleason stories honored with Emmy award

I mentioned this last week on Facebook and Twitter, but forgot to mention it here. In case you missed it, my two stories with former Saint Steve Gleason that WDSU chief photographer Megan Mackel and I shot back in April were honored with an Emmy award in Ft. Lauderdale on December 5.

In April, I spent time with Gleason at his home and gained a some insight into his daily struggles and triumphs as he battles Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS. It really goes without saying, but he is truly inspiring… and his message — and mission — are important ones. They can’t get enough attention.

Here are the stories I produced with WDSU chief photographer Megan Mackel:
