Zimmerman Trial Kicks Off Today


Opening statement in the George Zimmerman trial and expected to start at 9AM this morning and you can bet Nancy Grace is as excited as a school girl.

But, Grace isn't the only one jack up for the Zimmerman trail. 

The Orlando stations will be making major changes to their schedules, so they can go wall to wall with Zimmerman.

Basically all the O-Town stations are moving their regularly scheduled shows over to their secondary channels.  

"We've seen a lot of activity both on our web and our mobile app," hsays WESH GM Jim Carter. "We've had a lot of streams of the jury selection process."

"There is a significant appetite for the case," WKMG news director Steve Hyvonen said. "We're going to keep going with it as long as viewers want to watch it."

He said high interest in the Zimmerman trial was reflected in ratings, web traffic and social media streams. But he added that WKMG will "constantly reassess" its plan and could adjust it.

Nancy Grace will do no readjusting and will be all Zimmerman all the time, until the trail is over or another white woman goes missing. 

Stay tuned....
