Leicester City Football Club helicopter crash coverage
Whatever format radio presenters and journalists work on, there is always the risk that today, their content will not be as they anticipated - for the most tragic of reasons. They imagine how they will cope, whether they will be able to strike the mood, find the words – and stay on the factual road. Radio lives the story as human beings do - from the tentative early moments - through the fact-gathering stage - and then the emotion.
Here, Radio Leicester, with also a news bulletin from Capital East Midlands, respond promptly when the helicopter carrying Nusara Suknamai, Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner, Izabela Roza Lechowicz – and Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha - crashed on 27th October 2018, having taken off from the pitch at the end of a game at the King Power Stadium.
