Racine Roundup

The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, Nov. 17. This week, Racine County Eye Reporter Emma Widmar discussed various stories with TMJ4 anchors, Steve Chamraz and Susan Kim.

The segment started by talking about the 13th Annual Dan & Rays Rendering Thanks Thanksgiving feast. Community members are welcome to attend the event, volunteer or donate to the cause. Read about how to get involved on our website.
