Florida Or Not: Man Nearly Burns Down Hospital to Smoke Crack, Shoplifter Uses Poop to Get Away

The weirdest, wackiest stories that happened in Florida and around the U.S. this week

It was a pretty wild week in the news, full of some spectacular “Florida or Not” stories from the holidays. My co-host Chris Markowski was out this past week and didn’t get to partake in this weekly segment, so we made up for it this week. In case you are not familiar, every Friday, I read Chris five news headlines — including some very weird ones, since it is Florida, after all — from the past week and he has to guess if they happened in Florida or not.

Listen below to hear the stories and find out how Chris did!


Your Wake Up Call, featuring Chris Markowski and Jenna Laine, airs Monday through Friday from 6 to 9 a.m. on AM 820 News in Tampa Bay and AM 1190 News in Orlando.
