> WKMG Problem Solver Mike Holfeld appears on the Dr. Phil show tonight on Local 6 to talk about the case of former Lockheed engineer Allison Quets, who kidnapped her birth twins from their adoptive parents. Not familar with the story? Click here for what Holfeld reported back in February.

> The Don Imus saga had a profound effect on Orlando broadcasting. The Sentinel’s Scott Maxwell reports that a on-air discussion of the New York curmudgeon’s racist comments led to one local radio personality storming out of the studio, quickly followed by another — which left the station scrambling to fill the dead air with a "best of show." Who’s involved? Read all about it here.

> Local stations are required by the FCC to file annual reports on how well they do hiring minorities. These Equal Employment Opportunity reports have been posted on the area stations’ Web sites. Are they doing enough to try to hire minorities? Read the reports for yourself here on WESH/WKCF and WKMG (2007 reports), and WFTV/WRDQ and WOFL (2006 reports).
