Steve Centanni (pictured), the Fox News reporter kidnapped along with a cameraman and translator in Gaza, took risks to get good stories, says his brother Ken, who lives in San Jose. KCBS-AM’s Matt Bigler says Centanni’s capture by the Palestinians on Monday is a nightmre for his family in the South Bay. “That’s my brother,” Ken Cintanni told Bigler. “He didn’t mind stepping into the positions that were a little bit risky to get the good stories. We’re very proud of the things he’s done but now we want him to quit.” Before joining Fox News, Steve Centanni was a producer at KRON-TV for eight years and worked at a number of Bay Area radio stations as a reporter.
