On Newsfeed Now for April 4, we began with a story about an Arkansas woman’s unique tribute to a Los Angeles rapper and songwriter. Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed outside his clothing store Sunday. KARK’s Re’Chelle Turner was with us to share details about the artwork. 

Our next story took us to New Orleans where the search continues for a teen who went missing last week. The FBI is now widening the search. At 6:05 KLFY’s Tracy Wirtz joined us for updates on the case. 

From there, at 11:40, a new online scam targeting student loan debt is making the rounds. KARK’s Michael Esparza tells us what social media users should be on the lookout for. 

And finally, last week we shared the story of Jennifer Rogers, an assignment editor at WKRG who was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. Her team is showing support by organizing a motorcycle ride to raise awareness about colon cancer. At 13:59, WKRG’s News Director Chris Best joins us to share her story.
