STUFF FOUND ON THE NEWSROOM FLOOR....
A RECENT STUDY CONDUCTED BY UNITED Van Lines and reported in Forbes Magazine tells us where people are moving from and where they're going to. Think Ohio is one of these? The following states have more people moving out than moving in...New Jersey, Illinois, New York, West Virginia, Connecticut, Kentucky, New Mexico and Massachusetts. Where are people going? Number one on the list...Oregon. The reasons for the moves vary. Everything from weather, job opportunity, cost of living and federal budget cuts.
WHILE I'M IN A LIST MOOD, who are the most popular and the least popular morning show celebrities...We seem to love Robin Roberts, Sam Champion and Josh Elliott, all from Good Morning America (although Champion has now moved to the Weather Channel. We also like Norah O'Donnell, Charlie Rose and Al Roker. Who is on the bottom of the list? Gayle King from CBS This Morning and Matt Lauer, Carson Daly and Kathie Lee Gifford, all from NBC's Today Show. Now you know.
GUESS WHO WILL BE SERVING BREAKFAST in the near future...Taco Bell! In late March they'll be dishing out a Waffle Taco and a breakfast version of their Crunchwrap. In the meantime, McDonalds is considering expanding their breakfast hours. Well that's only about 25 years too late. Now be honest, how many times have you looked at your watch while craving an Egg McMuffen, only to discover they stopped serving breakfast 15 minutes ago. Drat!!
HAVEN'T MENTIONED THIS ON THE AIR, BUT did you see the report about a mysterious illness found in kids in California? Doctors say it's very much like polio! Many health pros say this is NOT good because polio was wiped out in the US in the 1950's. Expect much research on this one. By the way, all the kids with the polio-like illness HAVE had the polio vaccination. Yikes.
HAVE A GREAT DAY AND JOIN ME TOMORROW morning at 9am on 640 WHLO. JIM
