Stormin' Mornin' on The Breakfast Show

Posted: Updated:

Good Morning
Today is Tuesday, January 17

So far consider yourself lucky if you're in the Heartland. Aside from some high winds and maybe some outdoor furniture blown around, we have missed the serious storms that rolled through the St. Louis area around 3 this morning. But we might not be totally in the clear just yet. Watch for Brian's morning forecast starting at 4:30 on The Breakfast Show.

This morning we're also working to bring you updates from two tragic stories Monday: the death of a 61-year-old man in a Mt. Vernon fire and the shooting death of a 44-year-old woman in Dresden, TN.

We also have news from the presidential campaign trail this morning. There was yet another debate last night in which the front-runners went at each other. We'll let you hear some of their best comments throughout the morning starting at 5.

At 5:10 this morning we have a new story coming out of Argentina, but it involves one of Missouri's most well known companies and allegations of workers in slave-like conditions.

Then, at 5:15 it's news that most of us can use. We'll be showing you some simple ways you can lower your home insurance rates. I just watched this and there really is some good insight here to the insurance industry with information you can act on today.

Speaking of today - the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals are scheduled to meet President Obama today at the White House. We'll tell you more about their visit at 5:30 this morning and watch tonight for new video.

Have you heard the term that your eyes are the window to your soul? Well that may be truer now than ever. Watch at 5:45 and we'll show you some amazing new contact lenses that can see into your body and tell you what's wrong. This is some fascinating, and a little scary, futuristic stuff!

Here's something that's also scary - a 5-year-old boy allegedly stabbed 3 people over a juice box! I'm not kidding - this kid is now behind bars accused of this crime. Learn much more about this child's troubles around 6:10 this morning.

And here's something most of us fight with each day in the winter - dry skin. At 6:20 this morning we're going to one of the driest areas of the country in the winter and getting some expert tips on keeping your skin healthy.

Plus - if you've not heard about the amazing season the Murray State men's basketball team is having yet, you need to know about it. This local team is now only 1 of 2 undefeated division 1 teams left in the nation! That is a big deal! Even if you're not a sports fan you can appreciate this accomplishment. Our Heartland Sports team is following them close - so be sure to tune in to watch Todd Richards every night at 6, 9 and 10 on Heartland News.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and tune in this morning for The Breakfast Show.
