The Fourth of July holiday isn’t the only thing that the Alon USA 7-Eleven Funtastic Fourth event will be kicking off. NewsWest 9 and their traveling summer event Under West Texas Skies is beginning three weeks early just in time to broadcast live from the Downtown Revitalization Association’s main event.
“Every year since I’ve been here, we have been going to Big Spring at least once (on the Under West Texas Skies broadcasts),” said Jackie Rutledge, Newswest 9 general manager. “This year, we will kick off their Alon USA 7-Eleven Funtastic Fourth event. We will have our anchors there, Trevor Tankersley and Crystal Crews, and we will also be doing the weather there.”
