The latest national news outlet to cover the youth suicide cluster Palo Alto experienced in 2014 and 2015 is ABC's Nightline, a national late-night television program that provides in-depth reporting on one or more major stories in the news.
Nightline will be airing its story Tuesday night at 12:35 a.m., producer Sally Hawkins told the Weekly.
A digital "written report" will also be posted to the health page of ABCNews.com in several hours, Hawkins said Tuesday morning.
Nightline co-anchor Byron Pitts, who joined ABC News in April 2013 as anchor and chief national correspondent covering national news stories and in-depth features for the network, visited Palo Alto last week to interview sources for the story, including Marc Vincenti, former Gunn High School teacher and co-founder of Save the 2,008, a grassroots school-reform group that formed in response to last year's suicide cluster. Gunn Principal Denise Herrmann and a group of students from both Gunn and Palo Alto High School who produced "Unmasked," a documentary that explores the roots of teen mental-health issues in Palo Alto, were also interviewed.
Herrmann discussed "the positive changes we have made at Gunn including the bell schedule, staff training, homework policy, and the like," Superintendent Max McGee wrote in a weekly update.
McGee told the Weekly that he was not interviewed for the piece, though he offered to be.
