TONIGHT AT 6: Stokes' medical battle, SPF accuracy

TONIGHT AT 6: Stokes' medical battle, SPF accuracy

A bombshell today from former Congressman Louis Stokes. He tells us he is battling brain and lung cancer. We have more on the legend who served our community for 30 years.

Plus, it's the season for sunscreen and a lot of it! But did you know not all sunscreens are what they say they are? We have a consumer alert about those SPF numbers and their accuracy.

Romona and I hope you'll join us for 19 Action News at 6.
