Stories You'll See On K8 News This Week

Domestic violence is a crisis across America and right here in Region Eight. As Good Neighbors, it’s our responsibility to expose domestic violence. Monday on K8 News at Five find out about the effects domestic violence has on children.

A grandparent taking on the role of parent is hardly a new subject. What makes it compelling now is that it is a social issue that affects our nation’s most vulnerable members: children. Tuesday on K8 News at Six and K8 News Nightbeat, Diana Davis takes a look at what causes this to happen and what can be done about it.

Children today are exposed to an unprecedented level of media. Cell phone companies are even marketing towards children now. This Thursday, Lauren Payne looks at the explosion of cell phone use, and the saturation of media. Is it robbing young children of their innocence and imagination?

Join us for K8 News at 5, 6, and 10.
