The 6 o’clock News

Prompt: Perfection


Mark: In tonight’s news, local man acquitted in sexual assault trial; and, is there a spy among us?; some disturbing news about the city zoo and why it’s taking a hit; and, from Lydia the Travel Lady: are you paying too much for cruise excursions?

Marsha: In breaking news, the wife of Vincent Demarco, who was brutally cut down in the prime of his life last month, speaks out. Mark, the police have few leads and Demarco’s family and friends want closure. But even after extensive investigation, the killer remains on the loose!

Mark: That’s right Marsha. We’ll have an exclusive interview with Deborah Demarco, Vincent’s grieving wife, later on in the broadcast but first… did you say loose? Because you’ll want to wear some cool, loose clothing this weekend, Marsha– there’s a hot one ahead!

Marsha: Perfect barbecue weather, Mark! And Karen and Geoff have some summer grilling recipes that will knock your socks off!

Mark: There was some testimony at the Jenny X sexual assault trial, just leaked, that will also knock your socks off!

Marsha: It’s tragic, Mark. Also tragic: what unsuspecting tourists are paying for alleged antiques in cruise ship ports of call!

Mark: All this and more coming up after this message from Global Insurance…

Marsha: Remember: “Global is Local, and You Matter!”
