When a Ferguson police officer shot and killed eighteen-year-old Michael Brown on August 9, many members of the media — including us — were shocked. Did this really just happen? What's our plan for reporting? But Brittany Noble didn't simply plan. She acted. As one of the first reporters in Ferguson, the KMOV journalist became a go-to source for updates on the ground, tweeting everything she saw and heard hours before almost anyone else and interviewing city residents about their feelings and their determination. Noble's reporting has remained steadfast, as tension between protesters and police continued to rise, pausing only recently for her wedding and honeymoon — a well-deserved break, if there ever was one.
