Oscar Alberto Polanco Herrera, CNC Noticias
4 February 2004

Polanco was shot three times in the head by contract killers on a motorcycle on 4 February 2004 as he left the studios of CNC Noticias, a local TV station in Cartago (300 km west of Bogota), where he produced and presented the city’s only local news programme.

For the past month, his programme had included a new daily segment in which he reported irregularities in the running of local bodies and companies and questioned those in charge on the air.
