Lauren Hill always wanted to make a documentary chronicling her battle with an inoperative brain tumor.

WKRC-TV gave her a video camera, and she filmed herself a couple of times, at least. You'll see the footage in "#Play for 22: The Story of Lauren Hill," a new documentary by Channel 12 news anchor Brad Johansen and photo journalist Eric Gerhardt airing Thursday (7 p.m., Channel 12).

Lauren, who died a year ago, would be very pleased, says her mother Lisa Hill.

"This is an amazing piece. She would be really proud," Hill told the audience after Sunday night's screening at Kenwood Theatre. "I wish she was here to see it."

Truth be told, Brad Johansen didn't want to give up his CBS play-by-play career or leave WKRC-TV sports in 2014. But his bosses really wanted him to switch back to news, where he started his career at Channel 12 in 1992.

In a tearful discussion with his wife Colleen, they decided she would return to teaching full-time at Mason Middle School, and Johansen would switch to news so he could "stay at home and put the kids (ages 13 and 8) on the bus."

Soon after he started co-anchoring the 4 p.m. news in September 2014, "the first story that came my way was Lauren Hill," he says.
