Today is Monday, August 23
Today The Breakfast Show begins a new chapter - we're now going on the air at 4:30 in the morning Monday thru Friday. Why so early? We feel there are many of you who get up early for work, get up early to get the kids ready, are just early risers like us, are at work or are just returning from work. And we want to make sure you get your local news on KFVS when it fits your lifestyle.
We also have 2 new additions to The Breakfast Show this morning:
- Tyler Profilet will be covering overnight breaking news and live events during The Breakfast Show each morning. Today Tyler is at Delta High School where kids are getting ready to return to class today after fire ripped through some offices a couple weeks ago.
- Stephanie Byars is also coming to The Breakfast Show each day to report on issues that are affecting you in the Heartland. This could include health news - like this morning - when she will be reporting on a disturbing new trend among teens. Have you ever heard of doing eyeball vodka shots? Watch this morning at 6:10 to see what some kids are doing to get a buzz.
Also new this morning - be looking for weather more often. How often? At least once every 10 minutes. Turn on The Breakfast Show in the morning and I guarantee you will not leave the house without knowing your forecast.
Overnight we've also learned of a bad incident in Bollinger County where a woman from Sikeston fell out of the back of a pickup truck.
We are also watching a live feed from the Philippines where a dismissed policeman has taken hostage a bus loaded with passengers.
Also new this morning - get ready to hear a lot of talk about Danielle. As in Tropical Storm Danielle - the Atlantic storm has strengthened, but the system is still far from land.
At 5:40 this morning - a new character comes to Comic Con in Chicago! Just look at the picture on the side of this email to see what I mean.
Thank you for joining us this morning - especially if you were up to watch at 4:30!
