Radio’s Deadly Stunts – The Jennifer Strange Story
Today, The Insider Exclusive presents: “Radio’s Deadly Stunts- The Jennifer Strange Story.” We go behind the headlines with Roger Dreyer of Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood, LLP, the Strange family’s lead attorney, to uncover the real facts of why this 28-year-old mother of three, needlessly died of Hyponatremia (water intoxication) in this tragic incident. And joining Roger is a former contestant from the very same incident that resulted in Jennifer’s death, as well as two jurors from this case.
The jury awarded Billy Strange and his family $16.5 million dollars for the wrongful death of his wife, Jennifer Strange. And, after the verdict, Roger Dreyer stated that this kind of verdict sends an important message to media organizations across the nation: "From day one, we have wanted to make certain that the media in the nation, particularly radio media . . . understand they can't have these kinds of contests without taking necessary steps to research them and educate the people participating." And what stronger message could we possibly want than that?
