Join host Dave Chaffin today as he gets into the two most popular program segments on The Morning Zone.

7:07AM MDT: Kids-At-Risk…the series where we explore the issues that effect our children and families. Today, Child Advocate, John Frentheway and Licenses Professional Counselor, Renee Hanson join Dave to look at A program aimed at reducing the number of hours young children spent in front of a screen didn’t accomplish that goal, but it did cut back on the meals they ate in front of a television, a new study found. That’s good news according to the lead author, because people tend to eat more and eat unhealthy food while watching television. “The relationship between screen time and obesity is linked to eating in front of a screen,” said Dr. Catherine S. Birken, a pediatrician at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. In addition to its association with obesity, the study’s researchers say screen time – whether it is in front of a television, computer or video game console – has been linked to children having problems with language development and behavior, and their likelihood of cigarette smoking. “These are really important health outcomes in young children,” said Birken. “So we need to understand what works and what doesn’t.”

8:07AM MDT: Wyoming Perspectives, is a special segment on The Morning Zone with Wyoming Legislator, Amy Edmonds and Wyoming Liberty Group Economist, Sven Larson where we explore both national and local issues that effect us here in Wyoming.
