Media doing heroic work in keeping us informed

I can see showing thanks to first responders — doctors and nurses, etc. — and calling them heroes.

But I have yet to hear anyone thanking or calling our local news team (WTAJ) and our local newspaper (Altoona Mirror) heroes.

The anchors, reporters, press room, mailroom workers and delivery people are risking themselves, just like these other heroes, to keep the public informed.

But are they being called heroes? No.

So to some real heroes, thank you.
