I was so disappointed that your crew did no less than three reports linked to the "castaways" in the first five or ten minutes of the show. The studio report would have been (more than) enough, but to go to live reports of parties in Tidewater and downtown Roanoke was really overkill. Who called the shot to push such "petty" stories as a major plane crash and a hurricane to the rear of the news? I'm probably the only person to gripe about this, but I sure expect more of my "hometown station" than major coverage of such a lightweight event. Please don't sacrifice the journalistic integrity that you all have earned over the years by getting caught up in the hype of a craze or fad. [Addresses]

This Hokie is now a Cavalier. He's taken off the pads, for the time being, and picked up a whistle as an assistant for Lord Botetourt High School.
But these teenagers aren't in awe of Johnson's college and NFL Europe experience.

While he's teaching them the game and helping them realize the goal of a state championship, these players are also pushing Johnson to achieve his dream of professional football.
Johnson says during workouts his players make sure he's giving his all so he's ready for the XFL combine on September 16th.

The XFL is a new league started by The World Wrestling Federation's Vince McMahon.
