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.

POT-BY-MAIL ARREST

Indiana Township officers say the investigation led to 22-year-old Cody Pavlik. The Valley News Dispatch reports officers smelled pot at his home and found a pound and a-half of the illegal weed, along with nearly 32-grand in cash.

CASINO IMPLOSION-VEGAS

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Clarion Hotel and Casino off the Las Vegas Strip is expected to collapse. But it's nothing to worry about. The hotel is to be leveled in an early-morning February 10 implosion. The 200-room 12-story hotel has been known over the years as the Debbie Reynolds, Greek Isles, Paddlewheel, Royal Americana and Royal Inn. There have been 12 casino-hotel implosions in Sin City since 1993. The last one took down the New Frontier in November of 2007.
