 Good afternoon!

This is Sara Diamond in the News Channel 11 Newsroom.  Hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Spring day!  Our crews have been all around the Tri-Cities region working hard to bring you some great stories you’ll see on today’s newscasts.

Both Wellmont Health System and Mountain States Health Alliance have informed their employees via e-mail of the potential merger of the two systems.  We’ll have details of the contents of the e-mails, and the hurdles they’ll have to clear in order to successfully become one health system.

Allie Hinds is working on a story about folks who commute to work or school by foot, and the frustrations and dangers they face because of lack of sidewalks.

And, a fire on Unaka Mountain continues to burn.  We’ll have an update from fire crews.

Those stories, plus your Storm Team forecast, and the day’s sports news.

Hope you’ll join us today beginning at 5pm!
