As a resident of Springfield I would like to thank WWLP for the commendable job you did today reporting on the funeral of Office Kevin Ambrose. Your broadcast was the best in our area. the newscasters (especially Jackie and Laura) were well versed and poised under these circumstances. I am sure the family of Officer Ambrose and the officers of the Springfield Police Department appreciate the fine job you did.
