NBC News Correspondent Quits; Starts US Soldier Website NoIgnoring.com

Veteran correspondent Mike Boettcher is quitting NBC News to start a new website that will feature reporting from the soldiers’ perspective in Iraq. “We have 200,000 U.S. men and women in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf. The U.S. has seemed to have forgotten about them. We talk about the war, but we’ve forgotten the soldiers and what they are doing,” Boettcher said. Boettcher said he and his son will be embedded with the Fourth Infantry Division, and they’ll be posting blogs and video clips on NoIgnoring.com (which has yet to launch). TVNewser reports that Boetcher is here at NAB-RTNDA offering local TV stations free content from the site. He plans to leave in a month.
