  • On the second hour of GTU this morning – Follows and filters and hashtags-oh, my! As people nowadays spend an increasing amount of time on phones and electronic devices, terms such as these have weaseled their way into our everyday vocabulary. Though people tend to have mixed feelings about social media, it’s a daily habit for many. In fact, according to the Pew Research Center roughly 72% of Americans use some type of social media; if not daily, then in some capacity. For some, social media is how they first connected with their significant other. For others, it’s how they remain connected with their significant other. Whether scrolling on a phone or desktop computer, a strong internet connection can have quite the impact on someone’s love life. We explain the results of a brand new poll!
  • And could you get off your phone for some cold, hard cash? Surae tells us how to unplug and put more cash in your bank account.
  • Plus, oh these photos! At 83 years old, Jane Fonda is still giving other models a run for their money. The actor and activist graces the April cover of Harper’s Bazaar and the word “stunning” doesn’t even begin to properly describe the photos. Fonda, who got her start in modeling before building a successful career in acting, poses in a slinky, sequined black dress on the magazine’s cover and we just can’t stop staring at her.
  • And it’s finally Friday! We have your weekend forecast and air quality report from UCAIR with our meteorologist Adam Carroll.
  • And at the end of the show, happy happy birthday to our own Deena Manzanares! She is turning the big 4-0 this weekend and we are celebrating our favorite mom-to-be with Del Taco bean burritos! Hope you join us for a fun Friday second hour of GTU.
