Happy Friday!

All new at 10 p.m., a bill aimed to help convicted felons find jobs after prison is moving forward in the state legislature. Franklin White spoke to a former inmate about proposal plans.

We will also have more from Jake Berent on Fayetteville police's announcement to help stop violence against faith-based organizations.

Governor Bentley first public appearance in the Gulf Coast following affair allegations was full of questions about impeachment proceedings facing him. We'll have more on the details of his visit also. 

Finally, I hope you had a great week. I for one am really looking forward to the weekend. Even though the temps won’t be as warm as I’d hoped, I will have to get outside and clear out my flowerbeds. I am not happy to say it will be in the 30’s Saturday morning.

Brad says it will eventually warm up though. He’ll have our complete weekend forecast at 10. Whatever you have on your agenda for the weekend, I hope you have a great one!  See you at 10.
