Good Day Alabama: Dec. 11, 2015

Here's what you saw on Good Day Alabama:

JEH JEH LIVE - Jeh Jeh is live for "Christmas at the Movies". This year, it's at The Pelham Civic Complex and Ice Arena. Get into the holiday spirit by experiencing your favorite holiday films on ice! Performers include local figure skaters from ages 3to 50, PLUS a special performance from Birmingham-born, 2012 U.S. National Junior Men's silver medalist, Mr. Tim Dolensky and 2014 National Pair Team Allyssa McDougal & Paul Schatz. There are three nights of skating fun for you to come out see.

BBJ - Mike talked with Ryan Phillips from the Birmingham Business Journal. They discussed how moving Alabama's primary up gives it more of an impact on the political race and brings more of the candidates to town. They also discussed the future of the Northern Beltline and how Coca-Cola Bottling Co. United Inc. is embarking on a major deal that will see its distribution territory expand into one of the region's most coveted markets. For more on these and other business stories, visit

MILTON MCGREGOR - Janice talked with Milton McGregor about the possibility of the reopening of VictoryLand. Judge William Shashy, who was appointed by the Alabama Supreme Court, handed out two rulings in support of McGregor. The Attorney General has appealed Shashy's ruling to the state Supreme Court. That likely won't be settled for a while, but Mr. McGregor will soon start hiring and training workers no matter what.

ZOO CREW - Kelly Garrison joins us from the Birmingham Zoo to introduce Mickey to a roadrunner. To learn more information about the animal or visit the zoo, go to
COMEDIAN - Lucas Bohn is energetic with an edge. The perfect blend of schoolboy charm and bad-boy charisma, his comedy is both smart and audacious. Known as the little guy who generates big laughs, Lucas has shared the stage with Dave Chapelle, Jimmy Fallon, and Pablo Francisco. Lucas' high-energy shows and hilarious impersonations make him an instant hit. With a supersize stage presence and the swagger of guys twice his size, Lucas is a comedic force to be reckoned with.
