Former KOAM anchor returns for duty

It was probably not the way the former Bre Sakas, now Bre LaFerla, had imagined her return to lending her face and voice to the big story of the day, but the former KOAM anchor was right in the middle of the big story today.
As mentioned earlier in The Turner Report, KODE's Alan Cavanna broke the news at 5 p.m. that a burglary at a microfilming company had resulted in the theft of thousands of St. John's Regional Medical Center patients' billing information.
Mrs. LaFerla, who is media coordinator at St. John's, had to explain the situation, first to the stations who used to be her competitors, KODE and KSNF, then to her former station KOAM, where she once anchored the 5, 6, and 10 p.m. news with Dowe Quick.
As for those records, I am still awaiting a letter from St. John's, but I have to admit I am not too concerned about this one. Apparently, St. John's has taken steps to make sure that they never lose information because of something done by an outside company again.
