    Who thought it possible? A morning without snow! Let’s celebrate with some news, shall we?

    Tom MacDonald will be at the 10:30 a.m. District Attorney press conference. The topic hasn’t been released, but the announcement coincides with the arrest and confession of the Kensington Strangler.

    Lizz Fiedler will look into the increase in reports of animal fighting in Philadelphia — just as the anti-dog fighting campaign launches here tomorrow.

    Peter Crimmins will bring us the story of Civil War re-enactments told through jazz. He’ll also dive into the proposals by 63 Knights Art Challenge finalists.

    Meggan Kole is reviewing the latest study about calorie counts to determine if any of these studies really mean anything, or if calorie counts are just too new a fad.
