6:16 am
kickoff. if temperatures dip below zero sunday, it will be one of the six coldest playoff games in nfl history. that goes back a ways. kcci will be the place to watch saturday's afc wild card game between the pittsburgh steelers and the cincinnati bengals. pregame coverage starts right here at 6:30, and kickoff is at 7:15. that means kcci 8 news at 10:00 will probably be delayed tomorrow night. but you will get all of the day's news here on kcci right after the game ends. shaina: economic headlines now, nexstar announced thursday it's buying up media general, a move that may leave des moines-based meredith corporation out in the cold. last year, media general announced plans to merge with meredith. but nexstar says its deal would be better for media general stock holders. variety reports that meredith has not given up on the original media general deal, offering more money to media general shareholders. and a better day for chinese stocks today could help u.s. stocks rebound. it was another tough day on wall street thursday. the dow dropped more than 392

6:18 am
fats to no more than 10% of daily calories, and consuming less than 2300 milligrams of sodium daily. that's the equivalent of one teaspoon of salt. eric: more ground-breaking technology from the consumer electronics show this morning. this one could actually help save lives. that drone by dji has thermal imaging technology, and is already being used by firefighters to help find people trapped inside burning buildings. take a look. dji also says their new thermal drone can help search and rescue teams or survey crop health. big around iowa. shaina: that could be useful today, visibility low, you could use it to find your way to work. metinka: fog is a concern and a wintery mix, a mixture of rain and snow affecting roads. from ankeny towards martin -- marshalltown and newton, like rainfall.

big issue this afternoon with highs in the mid-30's but over the weekend, temperatures take a big humble, bitterly cold wind chills on the way, we will detail it coming up in your 8 day forecast. pres. obama: the way it is described is that we are trying to take away everybody's guns. shaina: president obama hitting back at critics in a town hall meeting, arguing his increased restrictions on guns would not take them away from responsible gun owners. he said closing the gun show loophole would keep them out of the hands of criminals. a cnn poll found a majority of americans do support the measures he outlined this week. eric: other stories we're watching right now -- stock prices in china are still volatile overnight. trading is swinging between losses and gains. but any improvement is better than yesterday when a key index plunged 7%. it's having a ripple effect here in the u.s. where markets are off to their worst start to a new year ever. shaina: i talked with some

6:40 am
a modest standard of living. the number is $63,741 a year. the biggest expense child care at just over $1,000 a month. the economic policy institute also figured in things like housing, food, and transportation. i am short that is less than in some parts of the country. shaina: maybe more than you would expect. we have to share this video again. a unusual way to pick a president. two bulls from the worlds toughest rodeo at wells fargo arena made their picks with bull chip bingo. midnight the republican picked donald trump. oley the democrat seemed to favor bernie sanders, but never actually voted, so he is still undecided. i guess a little backed up. eric: that is pretty funny. it is very foggy. that is a picture from our
