Howard Helmer, the Omelet King and our New York expert, joined us by phone just after the 7:30 news to talk about his appearance on the Little Big Shots Forever Young TV show. His taping is done and he thinks it might possibly be airing this coming Wednesday evening on NBC at 7PM. The network was so impressed with Howard that they asked him to also be on Steve Harvey's daytime show and NBC has also asked him to do a blog for them...they are currently in negotiations!
Monday on Van and Bonnie in the Morning, comedian Willie Farrell will be filling in for Van and, we'll be talking with the Urbandale 4th of July folks about their schedule for the upcoming holiday!
I will be headed out early tomorrow morning to ride the Barnstormer Fan Bus to the playoff game in Sioux Falls, SD. I hope to see you at the game and I hope on Monday morning to be able to tell you that the United Bowl 2017 will be coming home to Des Moines next weekend!!!!!
Have a wonderful, fun-filled weekend!
