It's National Pork Month and I hope you had a chance to stop by our studio this morning and pick up your free pork certificate from the Iowa Pork Producers. Joyce Hoppes of the Iowa Pork Producers and Dave Struthers, a pork producer were out front of our studios from 6-8AM giving them out. Kenan Judge, the head of meat operations for Hy-Vee joined us by phone just after the 7:30 news to let us know about the coupon in their flyer...buy two America's Cut pork chops for $5.00 and get two free....with your pork certificate, you can get all four free! Joyce made us an awesome breakfast of biscuits and sausage gravy, breakfast casserole with eggs, ham, sausage and cheese, and fruit!
Just after the 8:30 news, we inducted a new member into the Van & Bonnie/Iowa Hall of Pride Hall of Heroes. Larry Spencer was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for almost seven years. He says his growing up in Iowa equipped him for the attitude he had to maintain in order to make it thru. Larry is such an upbeat guy and a truly inspirational speaker. We are honored to have Larry in our Hall of Heroes! You can check out the interview on our Hall of Heroes webpage.
Tomorrow morning we'll have the last pair of tickets to see Frankie Valli at the Civic Center Friday night...we'll also be announcing a new promotion directed toward veterans just after the 8:30 news...and don't tell anybody, but I'd bee paying extra attention tomorrow morning to anyone wearing a witches hat!
Have a fabulous day!
