From the Newsroom: Fighting For His Life, Sharing Her Story


The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom:

We check in on a doctor trained in Fort Worth who is a victim of the Ebola outbreak he was trying to battle. And an event supporting the immigrant children who have crossed the Texas border put a spotlight on a 13 year-old girl in the middle of that debate.

You can listen to the segment weekdays at 6:20 p.m. and 8:20 a.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
