Colorado Shooting Claims Former Radio Intern's Life

One of the victims of the senseless tragedy in AURORA, COLORADO, was a fledgling journalist with radio experience. Twenty-four-year-old JESSICA REDFIELD (real last name: GHAWI) was one of 13 people killed by a shooter at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises -- just hours before she was scheduled to meet with MILE HIGH SPORTS Magazine editor-in-chief DOUG OTTEWILL regarding a sports journalism career.
REDFIELD was SAN ANTONIO native who once interned at CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KTKR (760 THE TICKET)/SAN ANTONIO before moving to COLORADO at the suggestion of MILE HIGH SPORTS RADIO Sports KCKK morning host PETER BURNS. You can read a tribute to her by KCKK's CHRIS BIANCHI here.
Ironically, REDFIELD was in a TORONTO mall a month ago when another shooting occurred. You can read about it here.
