WTVY Web Wednesday
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.
On Tuesday, News 4 reported that shipments of Girl Scout cookies had arrived in the Wiregrass for those who had pre-ordered the popular treats. On Facebook and Twitter, we asked, “What kinds of Girl Scout cookies are your favorites?” Johnny Cox responded, “"Do si dos...thin mints and tag alongs." Osaka Jack replied, “"Thin mints, until they changed the recipe. They claim they did not, I know. I always know such things. heh heh." Tammy Warren named Peanut Butter Patties as her favorite. And, OneBrokePony tweeted, “Samoas, definitely. Apparently those are called Caramel deLites in some places.”
As one of many features for National Creativity Month, News 4 This Morning challenged its viewers and followers to create a primetime TV schedule—using any shows, past or present. Earlier in the week, there were several responses we shared. In the video above, you can see even more ideas that were shared with us!
According to a report from KTXS and CBS “for the first time since iTunes started, digital music sales decreased because of the increasing popularity of vinyl records.” They added, “Vinyl record sales are taking off around the country for the second time in history.” On our Facebook page, we asked our viewers if they still listen to music in the format. Iris Pherrman replied, “"My husband still has several and it loves to fire up his record player and get down with it!!!!!" And, Shannon Arwood commented, "My husband and I still play vinyl at home...but I prefer CD's. You don't have to download, upload, or sort through... stuff. Just pop it in. More time could be...spent buying an album and playing it, than...on a computer...and waiting on the downloads."
January 14th was National Dress Up Your Pet Day, and to mark the occasion News 4 This Morning shared a variety of pet pictures from across the country and the world. We have even more to share this morning, including a video—see it in our video above!
Over the past weekend, a Lego event took place in Birmingham, Alabama. There were displays made of Legos ranging from Alabama landmarks to airplanes. Amy Brown attended the event, and shared pictures from the event with us. You can see those in the video above!
