WDJT-TV CBS 58, Hunger Task Force and Brewers team up for food drive

Brewers Community Foundation, Hunger Task Force and WDJT-TV CBS 58 are working together to help feed Milwaukee-area families.

On Nov. 26, the three organizations will host the "Thanksgiving Drive Thru Food Drive" at Miller Park. Food can be dropped off at Helfaer Field – the Little League diamond -- at Miller Park between 4:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.

"Brewers Community Foundation looks forward to partnering with the Hunger Task Force annually as they work diligently throughout the year to provide food for families," said Brewers Community Foundation Executive Director Cecelia Gore.

"On behalf of Mark and Debbie Attanasio, our front office staff, players and other supporters, we want to thank everyone for their contributions as we head into Thanksgiving and the holiday season."

Each vehicle stopping by with a food donation will get a Brewers bobble head, a gift bag and other items while supplies last. A number of Brewers special guests will be at Miller Park throughout the day to collect donations.

" … Our friends at CBS 58 and the Brewers Community Foundation are spending the day before Thanksgiving collecting donations from big-hearted folks making a difference right before the holiday," said Sherrie Tussler, Executive Director of Hunger Task Force.

"It's an easy, fun way to donate and help a family before gathering together with your own."

WDJT will broadcast the "CBS 58 Morning News" with Nate Kuester, Jessica Tighe and meteorologist Rebecca Schuld live from Halfaer Field at 4:30am.

"Donating food to feed the hungry is a wonderful way to put the 'Thanks' in Thanksgiving this holiday," said Mark Strachota, Vice President/General Manager of CBS-58. "CBS 58 is proud to work with Brewers and the Hunger Task Force to make this happen."

FEELING LOST: Quizmaster Trivia will host a 30-question quiz extravaganza about "LOST!" at 7 p.m. Nov. 23 at the Milwaukee Ale House.

Cost is $5 per player and is paid at the door at 233 N. Water Street, Milwaukee, 53202. Participants can RSVP on Facebook.

RATING WINS: Last Sunday's football game between Green Bay and Philadelphia brought in the largest football audience in the market since 2012. The game scored a 51.6 rating for WITI-TV Fox 6.

Taking a deeper look into the October sweep's demographics numbers, WITI did well against the local completion among adults 25-49 in the morning newscasts. "Real Milwaukee," which airs at 9 a.m. on the Fox affiliate, beat out "Kelly and Michael," "Morning Blend" and "Let's Make A Deal" among adults 25 to 54. And, "TMZ" beat out all other syndicated shows between 5 and 7 p.m. among adults 25-54.

NO STREAMING HERE: "Bill Cosby 77," the latest special recorded by the stand up and television comic, will not be streamed on Netflix on Nov. 27 as originally planned. The service announced this week that the special will be postponed.

Although Nexflix won't say why the postponement is happening, the BBC and other news outlets are reporting that it may have to do with the resurgence of sexual abuse allegations in news headlines.

According to the BBC, Netflix's announcement came shortly after Tuesday's airing of an interview with a model and TV host Janice Dickinson, who claimed Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982.
