A Little TV Magic - 05/30/14

  I just gave a Belmont student considering a career in broadcasting a tour of our studio.  We have a really nice performance set and it's fun to share it with tour groups and the next generation of journalists.
  A few weeks back during another tour for a group of boy scouts from Gallatin, one of the parents told me they had recently been to New York City and toured the set of NBC's Today show.  The parent said the Today show set was smaller and less impressive than the Fox 17 set. 
  A little tv magic.  Just like the side mirrors on your car, some things are closer or larger than they appear.  Not that size is the most important thing because the Today show crew certainly does a great job, but it was fun to have someone else brag on our set.  We use it as best we can to serve our viewers.  That's what it's all about for all us at Fox 17.

DAVID LETTERMAN-CAPITOL GYROCOPTER

NEW YORK (AP) -- David Letterman will soon retire. But he's not letting a juicy target like the U.S. Capitol gyrocopter landing go unnoticed. Last night, on CBS' "Late Show," Letterman did the Top 10 "questions to ask yourself before landing a gyrocopter on the United States Capitol lawn." Here are a few examples:

No. 8, "Should I do this during Secret Service happy hour?"

No. 2, "Should I land somewhere unguarded, like the White House?"

And No. 1, "Will I be the only person who actually did something in Washington today?"

AIR PUMP THEFTS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some New York City crooks are getting pumped. The NYPD reports they're looking for two suspects in a string of air pump thefts from gas stations in Brooklyn and Queens. Seventeen such incidents have been reported since late December, the latest being earlier this month. Investigators report the pump bandits attach tow chains to snatch the coin-operated air pumps. The pumps can hold up to a few thousand bucks worth of change apiece.

MARIJUANA-BIKE TIRES

DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) -- Two Arizona teens are in trouble -- after federal officers say they tried smuggling pot hidden in bike tires. Customs and Border Patrol Enforcement officers report finding a total of seven pounds of marijuana inside the tires. A drug-sniffing dog alerted customs officers as a 17-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl crossed the border. The bikes were seized. The teens have been turned over to Homeland Security investigators.

CELLMATES-HOLE-DIGGING CHARGES

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- It's no Shawshank Redemption. Two men are charged with digging a hole in a cinderblock cell wall in a western Pennsylvania jail. They didn't get very far. Somerset County Jail Warden Gregory Briggs says the hole was only about four inches wide. Joseph Lee Bockes and Billy Ray Naill now face charges that include institutional vandalism. Authorities didn't file attempted escape charges because the hole was so small. The Somerset Daily American first reported the story.
