“There’s no question that the Seattle Police Department is being hobbled in all of this, but now [they’re] being defunded and in fact vilified by the very people that they serve.”

CBN News contributor Chuck Holton spent several days in Seattle’s CHOP zone and he breaks down the latest events taking place in the city.

Producing a newscast that's broadcast across the nation and around the globe is a team sport for sure and not for the faint of heart.

Correspondents and videographers gather information and video up until the last minute.

And a day's work of well-laid plans is routinely upended at the last minute to accommodate breaking news.

Shoshannah Nunez is the producer of CBN's Faith Nation which means she's responsible for the entire show. No pressure!

In this previously recorded episode, Nunez explains how she spends her days, what drives her crazy, and why her job is perfect for adrenaline junkies.
