Fox29's Dawn Stensland
sat for an interview with Vicki Glembocki
for January's Philadelphia Magazine. Topic: How Stensland kept it together while the feds were probing and prosecuting her husband, Larry Mendte
, and as her own station was among those covering the story. Headline: "Dawn's Dark Days." Gutsy move: Stensland, who spoke on her husband's behalf at his sentencing last month, could be called as a witness in Alycia Lane'
s civil suit against Mendte and CBS3, their former station.

What if 9/11 conspiracy theorists were right?
