Local 10 P.M. News on Weekends

A lot has been made about fake news lately; often justified. As an example, there was the false news item of Britney Spears dying in an automobile accident. 

But there is an interesting phenomenon in Alabama: Locally, our 10 PM news on Friday is given over to high school clips and scores: Roughly, 80% of the program.

On Saturday night, the focus shifts to Alabama and Auburn football; but maybe a nod to Alabama A & M and UNA. And maybe if there is some cataclysmic outcome in some other game. 

Suppose the Biblical Four Horsemen were involved:

One horseman: not a peep.

Two horsemen: maybe; if War or Death are involved.  If Famine or Pestilence are involved as the two, then fuggetaboutit.

Really gory accidents with live camera footage: it's definitely local news.

Of course, the hot weekend weather girl will make an appearance. In colder weather, she will forego a bra.


  1. Friday night is the high school sports night in St. Louis. ALL the stations with 10PM news.

  2. Show us the weekend weather girl (when it gets cold.)
