First Person: CLU Club
I threw my gear in one of the station's SUV's and headed south.
When I got there, the building was still smoking. Photographer Jason already had done some interviews on his own and had all the information I needed. I walked around a bit to pick up a few tidbits. Before you knew it, it was air time.
By the way, CLU Club is a membership organization started by the unions. It's now open to everyone, and there's an adjacent social hall for rent. It was destroyed as well.
After the morning news and Good Morning America, photographer Jason was replaced with photographer Erich. Er got another interview, more video, and more facts. We then headed back to the station to put together a story for our noon broadcast.
It appears the building is a total loss. The fate of CLU Club is uncertain.
AS I write this, there is a blizzard warning in effect. Please, be careful. Stay home if you can. Look for updates here, on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
