It's Dan's turn in the Grill-Off Challenge! It's Dan's turn in the Grill-Off Challenge!

Only one more day until the weekend...grab some coffee and keep it up!

It's looking like a gorgeous day here in the tri-state! Katy is saying that after a cool start to your day, look for plenty of sunshine this afternoon with highs in the mid 70s. Katy and Frank will have your current weather conditions and a complete seven-day forecast starting at 4 a.m.

Traffic, traffic, traffic...everyone hates it. Fortunately, you have Stephanie Woods keeping an eye on the roadways so that you can get to where you need to be on time! You can check Stephanie out on-air from 4:30-9 a.m. or visit Traffic Tracker from your computer or mobile device.

A body found in the Ohio River over two weeks ago has been identified as 20-year-old Michael Degar of Cincinnati. Degar went missing last December after he was last seen near his home on Bouchaine Way. His cause of death is still under investigation and are working hard to bring you updates on this tragic story as they become available.

A wrongful death lawsuit is being filed after a Cincinnati police officer shot and killed a teen on Fountain Square last August. The estate of Devon Mullins is suing officer Oscar Cyranek and two other officers named in the suit as John Doe and Jane Doe. More on this story starting at 4:30 a.m.

Switching gears a little bit, how 'bout them Reds?! Todd Frazier homered twice and Brandon Phillips hit a tying single in the eighth inning last night, landing your Reds a 6-3 win over the New York Mets. Hopefully our boys can keep it up as the two teams play again at 1:10 this afternoon.

It's a proud day for Meteorologist Frank Marzullo! The Cincinnati Zoo named one of its newest family members after him! Frankie is a baby bat ear fox and as cute as can be! If you're looking for something to do this weekend, you should go check him out along with all of the other zoo babies...but in fair warning, you might fall in love! You can also see video footage and pictures of Frank and Frankie all morning long!

The boys are finally stepping it up in the Grill-Off challenge and Dan means serious salmon business! Coming up at 8:15, see if he can out-grill the girls and what delicious recipe he has up his sleeve! Our newsroom might permanently smell like charcoal, but it's definitely worth it with the food we get to try!

News, entertainment, probably a few laughs...what more could you want? All of this and much more on your FOX19 Morning News - you won't want to miss it!
