FTVLive reported Tuesday that WPXI’s Jennifer Tomazic was the victim of a paintball attack during preparation for a live report early on Monday morning. Videographer Moe Jetter intervened and informed Tomazic that she was the victim of a paintball gun.
In the wake of this event and especially last week’s fatal shooting of a Roanoke reporter and videographer, WPXI has implemented new policies. Live shots are now per the reporter and videographer’s call. And reporters are no longer allowed to knock on doors.
