Here is what you saw on Good Day Alabama for March 8, 2013:
JEH JEH LIVE - Jeh Jeh joined us this morning from Putnam Middle School to talk about the help the school is getting after a horrific mercury spill last year.
BBJ - Ryan Poe, with the Birmingham Business Journal, joined us this morning to talk about mortgage statistics, an overabundance of apartments, and the effects of the sequester on UAB. For more on these and other business stories, visit www.birminghambusinessjournal.com.
GOSSIP MOM - Gossip mom, Jaime Sullivan, joined us this morning with the scoop on all of your favorite celebrities! We talked about everyone from Jessica Simpson, to Kate Middleton, to Kim Kardashian and their babies!
ZOO - Kelly Wall joined us from the Birmingham Zoo to introduce Mickey to a new animal. To learn more information about the animal or visit the zoo, go to birminghamzoo.com.
COMEDIAN - Comedian Jon Reep joined us this morning for a few laughs! He's probably best known as the Hemi guy. Jon is known to millions as the loveable redheaded redneck in the Dodge Ram commercials who leans out of a beat-up car and utters the now famous line: "That thing gotta Hemi?" But before that he was already one of the funniest comics in America, selling out clubs and getting standing ovations at college after college across the country. His show is supersonic energy filled with non-stop characters, dead-on impressions, super clever writing, and, of course, the one talent that separates Jon from all other comedians in the world: He's the best redneck dancer since Elvis. Come out and see one of the country's really great comedians, the Hip Hick, the Southern Dance Machine, "The Hemi Guy." For tickets or more information for this weekend's appearances, call the Comedy Club Stardome at (205) 444-0008 or visit stardome.com
