Month in Review: February 2015

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – One of the stories that dominated our headlines was also a story that hit very close to home. CBS News 8 Sports Director Kyle Kraska was shot six times in front of his home Tuesday, February 10. Also of interest was our story about the Cub Scout trip to Black's Beach and the arrest of a suspected North County child sex offender. And on a lighter note, the story about a San Diego seat filler at the Oscars generated a lot of engagement.

It was a joyous day for us here at CBS News 8, as our sports director Kyle Kraska paid us a visit. It's incredibly hard for us to comprehend that just 15 days ago, Kraska was shot multiple times outside his house. He awakened from a medically induced coma on Valentine's Day, and on Wednesday he miraculously returned home to his KFMB family.

While most of us had to make do with just watching the stars at the Oscars on TV last night, one lucky San Diegan was literally sitting among them. For the past five years, Laura Cain has served as a so-called "seat filler" for the epic Hollywood event.

Community-oriented posts were received very well among those that follow us on social media. Our updates on Kyle Kraska and the death of Mike Hardin, the owner of Hodad's, were some of the standouts.
