It's hard to believe that it has been nine months since San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was viciously beaten outside Dodger Stadium, leaving him in a coma that forever changed his life. After following the ups and downs of his tragic story, readers will have a chance to hear the 42-year-old speak for the first time in an interview that will air tonight.

Last week, NBC chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman aired a snippet of her interview with Stow, who is seen wearing a Giants 2010 World Series championship T-shirt. Stow, who suffered severe brain trauma, is not yet able to walk on his own, and he is learning how to speak again. His doctors say it is unlikely he will ever be a practicing paramedic again.

This video after the jump shows Stow asking Snyderman how she is doing. It's great to see Stow making progress.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
