A story you didn't see this week

Every day, we write a lot of stories that never end up on the air.

Breaking news... a live event that runs long... a reporter who talks long...

All can affect a show's timing, and so the producer's gotta "float" some scripts out of the rundown.

On Tuesday, swine flu and Arlen Specter news meant A LOT of floats.

A story we liked that you didn't get to see: a shoe giveaway for unemployed men and women, right here in Atlanta. It was held by an online shoe retailer, in conjunction with a job fair at the Atlanta Workforce Development Agency.
