I also love watching the news there. Every local commercial features either a) somebody I know or b) somebody I grew up watching on commercials.
The weatherman and the sports guy have been the same since I was in junior high school, and to this day, when you see one of them at the grocery store, you kind of feel like you just saw a celebrity.
And then there are the news stories themselves . . .
Like tonight's headline.
I love that a minor accident made the TV news when it wasn't even a hit and run and nobody was seriously injured.
I also enjoy that instead of giving the location with a cross-street, the description of the location read:
It happened around 9 o'clock Friday night on East 29th Street in Bryan near the Dairy Queen.Sometimes, it is just nice to know that there are still some small towns where a minor accident is the worst thing that happens on a Friday night.
