The terrorist bombings at the Boston Marathon were a seminal event in Boston’s history. The nation’s, too—but it was our marathon, in our city. Veteran reporters and photographers arrived that morning figuring they could “phone it in,” but in a flash, life and death unfolded before them in the biggest story of their careers. What did they choose to cover? To photograph? Why? What was it like for the subjects—victims and first responders alike—to become instant heroes and magazine covers? Explore all these issues with the front-line journalists and spectators who became overnight icons. Panelists include Carlos Arredondo, Kristen Daly, Marc Furcarile, Scott Helman, Charles Krupa, and Jenna Russell. Moderated by Kelley Tuthill of WCVB News. Produced by Boldfacers.com.
