WFIE celebrates 60 years

WFIE-TV hit the airwaves 60 years ago today. We've gone from black and white, to color to high definition, and from typewriters to ipads, from paper scripts to social media.  We'll celebrate on Sunrise this morning and tell you about a special show airing tonight, and an open house over the weekend.  So tune in and see what our anniversary cake looks like in color and in beautiful high definition.

Tornado anniversary

Today marks the anniversary of the strongest tornado in the US- in 2005. Although no one was killed in the storm, the towns of Madisonville and Earlington were heavily damaged.  We'll take a look back on Sunrise.

Severe weather possible

With that being said, temperatures will warm over the next several days as southerly winds kick up tropical air from the Gulf of Mexico.  A cold front will push into the area on Sunday bringing us a chance for storms.  The best timing appears to be from noon Sunday into the early evening hours.   Byron is tracking.

Reitz Home Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Evansville Reitz Home Museum. Tours of the newly decorated house begin Sunday. Nicole will take us on an early tour live on Sunrise.

Miss Daviess County & support for Mary Frances

Miss Daviess County will be speaking to Burns Elementary students about her campaign to raise awareness for the Lions Club Eye Foundation.  Emily Busby is live with the details, plus how the community is trying to help a young Owensboro girl recover after a nearly fatal car accident in Montana about a month ago.

And we'll also draw the name of another finalist for $10,000 worth of Ellington Fine Cabinetry.

So enjoy your Friday and we'll see you on Sunrise.
