Reddit: What is Conan going to talk about on Reddit
Conan Nolan will be discussing his coverage of O.J. Simpson’s entire story will be covered.
Nicole Brown Simpson was brutally murdered in her Brentwood home on June 12, 1994.
Conan Nolan, NBCLA’s longtime chief journalist for political affairs, was called by the assignment desk to report on the slaying.
It quickly became a media circus.
“At the time we didn’t appreciate, I don’t think, the enormity of this case or its ramifications worldwide,”Nolan added.
“It was a horrible crime scene,” Nolan recalled. “There was evidence everywhere in terms of the blood that was shed. You don’t often see that.”
“You actually had blood still on the walkway.”
Nolan also recalled an incident that had just shocked him in his role as a journalist.
When he was ready to take a live shot from the condo, he was already set up. The man got up and jumped out.
He saw that the man had a knife with a bag. He saw him remove blood and place it in the bag. He got in the sports car again and took off.
“I remember thinking, ‘Oh my god. What has happened?'”
