Show 16 Tuesday 18 April

Watch today's show at grouper or YouTube.


Kia Ora, in Stick News today, three crew members for The Weather Channel have been arrested in Tennessee.

The Weather Channel is an American television network that reports about the weather.
Weather reporting is not usually associated with danger and risk. But that image could change after the three arrests last week.
The weather crew were filming on private property. They allegedly ignored the 8 “no trespassing” signs and the six verbal requests to leave.

The local sheriff said he didn’t give them permission to be on the property. And the spokesperson for The Weather Channel didn’t say anything.
And that was Stick News for Tuesday the 18th of April.
Kia Ora.
