Racine Roundup

The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, Oct. 5.

This week’s segment was brought to viewers by Charles Benson and Susan Kim along with reporter Emma Widmar from the Racine County Eye.

This week, the Racine Roundup discussed the Wings to Fly program, the opening of two new businesses under one roof, and finally, a story on the upcoming race that will determine who is the fastest athlete in Racine County.

Wings to Fly in Racine

Widmar started off this week’s roundup with a reflection on last weekend in Racine County when the Wings to Fly program took flight in Racine for the second year.

The Racine Police Department, under the direction of Ofc. Brady, along with his aunt, the program’s founder, got things running in Racine.

On Sept. 30, students in the area, who are primarily female and those who are people of color, got a first-hand look at life in aviation.

Business Spotlight: Salas Studios

The next story featured the Salas family and their new business, which features Salas Photography and Fatboi Tattoo.

David and his son Jessie hope to provide Racine with a place where multiple artistic services can be explored.

This new business will kick off its grand opening on Oct. 7.

The Fastest Athlete

The segment rounded out with a spotlight on the upcoming race that will determine who is the fastest athlete in Racine County.

The anchors and Emma shared a handful of laughs as they reflected on Kim’s running history and look forward to seeing who will be there to vie for the title. Benson, will it be you?

Anyone looking to race can do so on Saturday at noon at Horlick Field and help support Racine’s youth sports.
