Chris Collins-Day Three
Chris Collins-Day Three

Day three of my fill-in stint on the “WHMP Morning News,” where at 7:10 you will hear the story of Sue Channel and her husband’s efforts to be able to keep their nine rescue dogs in Greenfield. At 7:40, activist Jim Cutler gives us an update on the effort to block a proposed natural gas pipeline through Franklin County. At 8:10, Lee Chamers from the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society will be in studio with a terrier mix (which should be interesting with co-host Smudge thed Papillon dog in the house), and Gazette Editor¬†Larry Parnass¬†stops by at 8:40 for our “Letters to the Editor” segment. It all begins at 5:30 on WHMP and WHMP.com. -Chris Collins
