This investigative piece exposed illegal, online alcohol sales by showing how easy it was for minors to place and receive an order.

Back Story: The suggestion for this story came from HTV Hall of Famer Jason Raphael, who was a news producer in Jacksonville, FL at the time.
The Focus Statement: “Teens can buy alcohol online”
Trivia: Rachel Miles and Kendra Weatherford received the Award for Excellence for this story from the National Television Academy (NATAS) in a ceremony held in Chicago. There is no sign off on this clip because originally it led directly into a report on the drug ‘salvia’ by reporter Lillian Olive.
