CCX Media's Dustin Cooper directed a live news broadcast on Friday, Feb. 14, 2020.

It was just before 2 p.m. on a recent afternoon and there, in a nondescript building in an industrial area of Brooklyn Park, Shannon Slatton was ready to go live.

Standing on a studio set at CCX Media, a community television station with an exclusive focus on nine cities in the northwestern suburbs of the Twin Cities, she used a screen in front of her to quickly fix a single hair that was out of place before launching into the top story of the day: A Robbinsdale man was charged after he allegedly tampered with the oxygen supply to patients at a hospital. The camera then moved over to reporter Jay Wilcox, who had results from a recent state Nordic ski meet, occasionally cutting to interviews with high school athletes.
