Good Morning, it’s Tuesday, 13 February 2018, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
Weather continues to be a factor at the Winter Olympics as winter storms and high winds hamper Alpine events. Yesterday, the action centered around qualifying for the men’s half-pipe, where veteran Shaun White put on a show with huge air and signature tricks. Also yesterday, the men’s Alpine combined (downhill and slalom) was staged despite difficult conditions. Marcel Hirscher of Austria won Gold in the event. Curling continues to rack up a lot of network coverage as more and more people get the “I can do that” feeling” while watching. You can see the running medal count with this direct link.
The Rob Porter alleged domestic abuse mess (what did they know, when did they know it) continues in Washington.
Overseas, a Russian Airliner crashed after takeoff in Moscow, killing all on board.
Today is Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday (and Valentines Day). Eat what you want and enjoy it.
What we’re listening to in The Media Bunker: The Valentines 2018 playlist, compiled by our music editor/producer/DJ Tschugge.
