Every Wednesday, News 4 This Morning takes a look at an assortment of the stories from our show that viewers and readers are talking about on our webchannel and related social media.
A reporter for WWSB in Sarasota Florida had his news van taken by a woman, while a camera was rolling! The van and woman were found a short time later, and the woman could face Grand Theft Auto charges. On Facebook, a pair of our viewers responded to the story. Cynthia Lyle wonders, “"...how stupid...was this woman to think that was her vehicle." And, Michael McClean references News 4 This Morning anchor Paul Stockman when he says, "I would never hit a reporter. Especially Paul! He's bigger than me!"
The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games are just around the corner. Earlier in the week, News 4 This Morning asked some of our viewers and followers which events in either the Winter or Summer incarnations of the Olympics are their favorites. Mindy Lindsey responded, “I love several of the events. Gymnastics, diving, bobsledding, skiing. I can't seem to pick just one. I watch it all. The Olympics is my sport of choice, like some love football or basketball. Mine just come around every other year instead of annually. I can't wait!” David Martin lists his favorites as “men's hockey, bobsledding and luge.” And, Sam Breth added, “I like to watch Figure Skating and this year I'll be watching Women's (2 person)Bobsledding. LoLo Jones who is an Olympic Runner is competing in 2 Women Bobsled. Go LoLo!!”
One unofficial holiday in late January that News 4 This Morning highlighted was Peanut Butter Day. On that day, we shared favorite peanut butter related foods and/or dishes of some of our friends, but here are some more picks! Kent Tye likes “Nutter butter cookies.” Kathie Mauldin says, Peanut Butter and jelly with a cold glass of milk! I like to dunk my sandwich. .. yummy in my tummy!” And, Sonya Bryan comments that she enjoys, “peanut butter pie, peanut butter cake, peanut butter crackers, peanut butter on a waffle! Anything peanut butter!”
As part of National Creativity Month, News 4 This Morning shared amusing pictures from our show on Twitter and asked our followers there to add funny captions or comments to the pictures for the inaugural installment of Morning Memes! We shared many great responses to those five photos last month, and have even more to share this month!
In addition, the first ever News 4 This Morning Pun Parade took place in January, also for National Creativity Month. See and hear some more viewer/follower-submitted puns in the video above!
