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


The manhunt continues for John Barry Hubbard in Hale County. Authorities say he kidnapped Tammy Carpenter and shot and killed her sister. We have a crew following the search every step of the way.

Birmingham jail conditions

More problems for the Birmingham Jail. Last week we told you about a low health rating for the jail kitchen citing a major roach problem. Now we’re learning about more complaints from inmates. We’ll have the full story at 5 and 6.

Cool jobs

What’s the coolest job you can find in the middle of all this hot weather? We sent Karen Church looking for a cool job today and see what she finds on FOX6 News at 5.
