Good afternoon and Good Friday from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we're working on for FOX6 News this evening.

Anthony Hinton is a free man today for the first time in 30 years. He was released from Alabama's death row after years of work by the Equal Justice Initiative to prove his innocence. We'll take you to his emotional news conference right outside the prison.

Auburn University data breach

Auburn University alerted students today to a data breach that left their personal information vulnerable for six months. We'll have details.

Absolutely Alabama

Fred Hunter is up a creek "with" a paddle for this week's Absolutely Alabama report. He'll take us to the Locust Fork of the Black Warrior River for some championship paddling.
