I am not 55 (getting close, 52). One of the memories I have is from the old days of the fair at the Mid-America Fairgrounds when they would do the full ½ hour live newscasts on stage at one of the buildings. It gave you the chance to see what went on behind the scenes, and to catch up with some of the people you see on TV all of the time. Plus, I have always followed the weather closely. The weather segment was what I paid most attention to.
