Local TV News Covers Austin's Reaction to Osama bin Laden's Death



Local TV stations sent photographers to The Drag last night on word that University of Texas students had erupted in jubilation on news that Osama bin Laden had been killed by US forces in Pakistan.  The above report from KXAN had the most interviews with celebrating students. Fox 7 sent a reporter to Austin Bergstrom International Airport to get reaction from travelers, some of whom hadn't even heard the news.

KVUE reported this morning from outside the Texas State Cemetery, home to a 9/11 Monument that includes two steel columns from Ground Zero in New York City.
