A Look Ahead to 5 & 6

Good Thursday evening to you!

Here's what we're working on for WTVM News Leader 9 tonight at 5:00 & 6:00...

Local businesses are chipping in this afternoon to help find the person who may have killed local jewelry store manager, Steve Toms. See where the reward stands now.

Some of UGA's toughest Bulldogs came from the Fountain City. As we near Saturday's SEC championship football game, we're talking with some of their family members about how the local players are preparing.

An East Alabama man is facing serious prison time after being arrested for trafficking in methamphetamine. Tonight, we take you inside the bust and talk to agents, who say the national war on meth just got a $12.5 million boost.

When a network TV anchor recently had to talk over a fire alarm for much of his newscast, it got reporter Jeanne Moos looking for the best fire alarm bloopers on live TV. You don't want to miss these.

See ya tonight at 5 & 6. Thanks for watching,

Jason Dennis
