Anything can happen when tv cameras are rolling live in public. Our local news and weather reporters are live at different parts of the Tri-State during newscasts everyday. Most of the time, the public is well-behaved and the news segment goes on without a hitch.

Fall Festival Live

Every year, all of the television stations do live newscasts and some special segments during the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival. We do a lot of live radio broadcasting, and you have to be kind of cautious when there is a big crowd around. It only takes one person trying to be funny to mess up your broadcast or get your station in trouble.

We don't need to give the two guys who clearly need attention any more than they have already gotten. You have probably seen the video clips on social media or TikTok. I would hate for fun live segments to end just because a couple of guys tried to ruin it.

Mr. Jackwagon,

I'll bet your mom is really proud of your TV debut. She probably taught you manners and you ignored her. Let me tell you, if my son ever did something so rude and inconsiderate he would never hear the last of it. In fact, this photo is from a live radio broadcast. He said the word 'Crap', and I lectured him for 10 minutes after he said it. He will still bring up, and that was years ago.

Then and Now - See Inside Evansville, Indiana's Eastland Mall

Eastland Mall opened in 1981, and it has changed a lot through the years. JC. Penny still anchors the mall on one end, and what was Lazarus Department Store is now Macy's.

Then & Now - Evansville's Washington Square Mall Through the Years

Evansville is home to a lot of unique buildings including the first enclosed retail shopping center in Indiana. Yes, our very own Washington Square Mall was the place to be when it opened in 1963. If you walk through the mall today, you would never guess how alive the shops were, even through the 1980s. Enjoy this walk down memory lane I've put together, and maybe someday there will be new life inside 5011 Washington Ave.
