National News Tonight!



Mark Durham moved his wife and children from Detroit last fall for the promise of a more stable career with the Houston Police Department. Mark, a police cadet in Academy Class 202, and his wife Patti, were recently invited to be guests on ABC's World News with Charles Gibson. Mark's portion was filmed on Friday and Patti's portion was filmed this morning. The story will be shown TONIGHT at 5:30pm on ABC. The story focuses on a group of individuals, including Mark and Patti, who moved to Houston to find a career due to the economic downturn in other parts of the country. I was on hand to watch Mark and Patti complete their interviews. They both did a wonderful job. Be sure to tune in tonight for the show. If you miss the broadcast don't worry, I will post it on the blog as a soon as I can.

Was Mr.Gibson nice? I used to watch him all the time on Good Morning America.

Mr. Gibson was very nice indeed. He is genuine and really cares about his subjects. It was a real pleasure meeting him and the whole staff. Everyone was very professional and accommodating.

Officer McCoy, I have NEVER seen someone do as much as you are doing to promote HPD. It is incredible the things you are doing. Congratulations and I can't wait to watch tonight.

I just watched World News Tonight and it was a good piece about Houston. I am glad to see people are finally realizing that Houston is a great city to live in. I can't wait till I become a cadet.
