The severe weather is approaching and we will have all the latest each day on BMN and WERC.
We talked to Jeff Monosso from Fox News Radio about the storms that hit Arkansas, Oklahoma, and other surrounding states last night that killed at least 18 people.
Also, yesterday marked the three year anniversary of the tornadoes that ravaged Tuscaloosa and other parts of central Alabama. Lars Anderson is a professor at Alabama and was teaching there when the storms hit. He is a former Sports Illustrated college football writer who did a great piece on the storms and how the athletics department helped get the city through the tragedy. He has a new book coming out in August called "The Storm and the Tide" that looks back at certain people's experiences on April 27, 2011. Listen to his interview here.
And Congress gets back to work today, and one of the hot button issues is immigration. John Boehner made a few choice comments about his GOP colleagues, and we talked to Jeff Birnbaum from Fox News and the Washington Times to get his opinion on where things are going when they get back to work on Capitol Hill.
We'll be back tomorrow morning keeping you up to date on the storms as they happen throughout central Alabama.

JT has been in radio for over 30 years, both as an on-air personality and Program Manager. He grew up in Pittsburgh and then attended Clarion University with the hopes of becoming a dentist. After spending time with friends at the campus radio station, he quickly changed his major to communications. “Speech class was a lot easier than chemistry and physics”, says JT. And as they say…the rest is history.JT has lived in 10 different cities during his career including Miami, Washington D.C., Cincinnati, Nashville, Birmingham and Miami.
In addition to hosting a morning talk show, he has also worked as an announcer in Top-40, Rock, Smooth Jazz, and Country radio. You can also look for JT in the movies “Hoffa” and “Striking Distance”.
JT and his wife Judy have two children. Alexandra is married and teaches 5th grade. Michael is a graduate of the University of Alabama and a former 3 Time National Championship winning football player for the team…ROLL TIDE! When not sitting in front of a microphone, JT can be found with his family most of the time. He absolutely enjoys his recreation too! Look for JT on the golf course, in the woods hunting or on the beach somewhere. “No doubt, I am truly blessed with an amazing family and give all the glory to God and my relationship with Jesus Christ! I really love what I do every day”.
Producer Wade stepped into the radio world nearly 5 years ago. He got his start as an intern at a sports production company and took the leap into radio as a Play-by-play announcer for the Georgia State University Women's Basketball Team. He made his way back to the Birmingham area via a radio cluster in Northeast Georgia. Wade has a degree from the University of Alabama in Management Information Systems and uses it daily to contribute in as many ways as possible to the show. He was born and raised in Cullman and his family still resides in the area.
In addition to producing Birmingham's Morning News with JT, Wade is the Sports Director for News Radio 105.5 WERC. He host's our Friday night "The 5th Quarter Show" providing the state of Alabama with post game scores from the High School fields and previews from the College stadiums.
In his spare time, you can find Wade around town at a local restaurant, bar, or music venue. He loves to spend time with his friends doing everything from attending Barons' games to watching a band at Iron City or Tin Roof. "I love what I do for a living. Any job that allows me to talk for a living while attending all the events I would attend for fun anyway is the perfect job for me!"
