As you wake up and get ready for the middle of the work-week turn on The Breakfast Show to see what Brian is forecasting for you this morning. Here's a hint - change. Not the political kind though... I'm talking about the cold kind.
Also on The Breakfast Show this morning we are working on several developing stories. We're trying to gather more information on a deadly shooting in Charleston where an officer shot and killed a man who rushed toward them waving a sword.
This morning we are also getting in the final unofficial number from election day in Kentucky. You can always find election results and political stories at heartlandvotes.com
And speaking of elections, Missouri voters might be voting on a marijuana ballot measure this time next year. Tyler Profilet will have the details of this proposal starting at 5 a.m.
That's not all possibly on the Missouri ballot next year. We'll be telling you about a proposal to raise the state's minimum wage again and make it higher than the national requirement.
Here's something else you need to know about this morning - at 1 p.m. (central) KFVS and WQWQ-TV, along with other radio stations, cable channels, and satellite TV networks in the area, will participate in a simultaneous nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System in cooperation with the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Emergency Management Agency. This test will last for about 60 seconds, after which we'll return to regular programming. This will only be a test and is scheduled to occur simultaneously on all radio and broadcast, cable, and satellite TV systems.
And since I'm writing about tests, today Lauren is giving you a preview of this year's Toy Testers! Toys for little kids to teens and maybe even adults will be put to the test by local students. See what Lauren's has planned around 6:15 this morning.
I'm just scratching the surface here - there is much more to be seen on this morning's Breakfast Show! That includes showing you how to easily transfer you bank accounts (5:20 a.m.) and telling you about a new study that claims to be able to predict if you will have an overweight baby.
We're on the air Monday through Friday starting at 4:30 a.m. - I hope you can turn to Heartland News and start your day with Jim, Lauren and Brian!
