What we're working on this morning


Here's some of the stories we're working on for you this morning:

1. Could the Mid-South Coliseum become home to the pro wrestling hall of fame? The future of the Mid-South Fairgrounds will be the focus of a community meeting in Midtown. There is a plan to redevelop the land and possibly demolish the Mid-South Coliseum, but others see a different future for the building. We'll preview and tell you how you can weigh in ...

2.  You can be one of hundreds of people Target plans to hire when it opens a distribution center in Memphis. The retail chain is already taking applications for 460 jobs. We'll tell you how to apply.

3.  Shelby County teachers were fighting a possible new merit pay policy. The superintendent says the district must make bold decisions, when 2/3 of third graders cannot read. Hear from both sides coming up.

4. There could be delays on a busy road in Germantown for your morning commute. Starting at 8:30 this morning, crews will be replacing a sewer line on Wolf River Boulevard at intersection with Germantown Road. We'll tell you how that may delay your commute today.

Weather update:

It's going to be a wonderful Wednesday morning in the Mid-South. We have some cool temperatures this morning with lows in the mid and upper 30s. Highs are going to be around 60 today with lots of sunshine. While others are dealing with snow we have spring-like temps in January! That's a great way to start your day!!
