TV anchor shares personal story of loss to fight stigma of opioid addiction
The CDC estimates overdoses killed more than 72,000 people last year, and it has become the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. News anchor Angela Kennecke of CBS affiliate KELO-TV in South Dakota has covered the overdose crisis for about 10 years. Four months ago, Kennecke lost her own daughter to the epidemic. When Angela returned to work this week, she shared her personal story with viewers. She joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why she felt obligated to take action.
