Greetings from the FOX6 Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at some of the stories we're working on for you tonight.
Time to pay up
You got it, now you gotta pay for it. That's the reality facing UAB students tonight, who volunteered to pay more each semester in student fees if the university brought back the football, bowling, and rifle teams. Our Sherea Harris has been hanging out at the UAB Alumni House tonight where students and alums have been partying tonight to celebrate the return and talk about what they still need to do to make Blazer football a success, she'll share their roadmap with us tonight on FOX6 News at 9.
Authorities announce new crime-fighting plan
And we're all working our sources to try and figure out what in the world is big enough to get Birmingham's mayor and police chief, the Jefferson County District Attorney, and U.S. Attorney to a press conference at 8 p.m. on a Tuesday night? They're just saying it's a "new violence reduction strategy," and our Christy Hutchings is in the room now waiting for that press conference to start. She'll be tweeting @Fox6Christy and will boil down the important stuff for us all new on FOX6 News at 10.
