Atlanta’s 11Alive morning show
visits McDonough


By Melissa Robinson
Contributing Editor 

  11Alive News brought its morning news program to Downtown McDonough this past Friday morning where anchorman Ted Hall and traffic reporter Elle Duncan reported from the historic McDonough Square. Crews began setting up at 2:00 a.m. and the show was broadcast live from 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m.

  Many residents and groups turned out for the early morning show to welcome the crew, including The Henry Players, various cheerleaders and dance troops, the Southside runners, the McDonough Lions Club and city officials, including Mayor Billy Copeland, who was interviewed near the 7 o’clock hour.

  Hall gave airtime to several individuals and local businesses, including the owners of Gritz Restaurant and Neil Daniel, owner of Kirby G’s Diner, who served up hamburgers to the crew. Representatives from the Henry County Humane Society and Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary were also on hand, and Gabe the Spider Monkey, from Noah’s Ark, stole the show off-camera after a little tantrum over a sign he apparently didn’t like.
