The Totally Awesome AusChron Newscast continues its unchallenged domination of all lesser newscasts. This week: wrapping up the trial of Texas judge Sharon Keller, protests from the fire department over proposed rule changes, and a ban on texting while driving before the city council. All this, plus an unplanned special guest appearance from inquisitive Chronicle managing editor Cindy Widner, and post-vacation brain freeze from totally awesome co-host Wells Dunbar and Jordan Smith.
