Karsten Clennel is the last of a dying breed. A freelance journalist who works the overnight shift, he prowls the streets hunting for good stories. Every night, KC heads off at 9pm with no real plan. He simply listens to various law enforcement scanners, hoping something newsworthy comes across. With no assignments commissioned, KC can work the entire night chasing stories and still be unsuccessful. If he doesn't find the right one, he doesn't get paid. VICE News spent a few nights with him chasing the scanners.
