KY3 photographer has Joplin connections

Cliff Erwin, the KY3 photographer who was arrested for ignoring a Highway Patrol trooper's orders to move while shooting a live remote during coverage of the Clinton Elks Lodge collapse, has ties to Joplin, according to an e-mail I received a few moments ago from a reader.
Erwin attended Missouri Southern State University, worked on the campus newspaper, The Chart, and reportedly was employed as a photographer for a time at either KSN or KODE.
If anyone has any further information, please drop me an e-mail at or leave a comment.

Ward Bryant was his mentor at MSSU. I believe Cliff came from Rolla. Also studied some German.
