KCUR Remembers One Of Its Best, Reporter Aviva Okeson-Haberman, Dead At 24
Only two years out of journalism school and Okeson-Haberman had already made a name for herself as a thoughtful, aggressive and compassionate reporter.
She died Sunday after suffering a gunshot wound at her Kansas City apartment. "She was relentless in the pursuit of the truth," Lisa Rodriguez says. "We talk a lot in journalism about holding people in power accountable and she was absolutely dedicated to that. And not just because she wanted to stick it to the man. Because she knew that government was responsible for the wellbeing of its citizens."
