Dawn Stensland speaks

Philadelphia Magazine will publish Dawn Stensland's personal story. The Fox29 anchor had been largely silent about her home life while her husband, Larry Mendte, was investigated by the FBI.

Fox29's Dawn Stensland sat for an interview with Vicki Glembocki for January's Philadelphia Magazine.

Under the headline "Dawn's Dark Days," the story will describe how Stensland kept it together while the feds were probing and prosecuting her husband, Larry Mendte, and as her own station was among those covering the story about Mendte's snooping on onetime colleague Alycia Lane.

Mendte attorney Michael Schwartz was present during the interview, which Fox29 knew about.

The mag goes to press Thursday, and the story is not quite finished. Copies of the mag are due on the street at the middle of next week.

Here's a recap of Mendte-Lane coverage.
