Letter: Lehner funeral coverage was respectful, moving

Lehner funeral coverage was respectful, moving

As critical as we sometimes are of television, we couldn’t help but feel moved by the local coverage of Buffalo Police Officer Craig Lehner’s funeral procession and the KeyBank Center service.

The City of Good Neighbors was promoted by the media and both came together to pay tribute to a fallen hero.

We were especially pleased to note that the commentators knew when to stop talking at emotional and sacred times.

Although Terry and Kim Pegula do not care to publicize their part in underwriting the costs of the funeral, we applaud them.

Their turning over their center’s video “pool” coverage to all of the local TV stations allowed for better coverage overall. It was reality TV at its best.
