Ride along with Austin-Travis County EMS on new A&E show premiering on Thursday
20 hours ago
Austin-Travis County EMS medics will be in the limelight beginning on Thursday in a new television series featuring overnight first responder shifts.
The new A&E docuseries “Nightwatch Nation” takes viewers into the lives of medics in four cities — Austin, Tucson, Yonkers and Baton Rouge — as they respond to emergencies.
Captain Holly Craghead and Paramedic Bob Luddy are two local medics who were cast on the show. Both said they were shocked when they heard they were chosen. Because of their different shifts, Craghead and Luddy have only worked together a handful of times throughout their careers.
