Sweat Spot

A number of news outlets have reported that Jelly Belly Candy Co. plans to close its warehouse and visitor center in Prairie, Wisconsin, and relocate that facility to Tennessee. But only WREG-TV seemed to grasp the true hotness of this news story. According to Channel 3, it's a "SWEAT DEAL." It's especially exciting for Memphians with a sweat tooth.

Big Ol' Ratings

Speaking of WREG, News Channel 3 won the first Nielson "sweeps" period of 2015, topping the competition in almost all weekday and weekend slots. Maybe it's because of their winter weather coverage. Or perhaps it's because they have the SWEAT beat covered. Or maybe it's because they know a "big ol' snake" when they see one.
