It's a topic that comes up from time to time.  One of Joe's Brown Bag Monday questions triggered the latest episode.

I read the winning lottery numbers and payouts, every hour, on the weekend morning editions of Newswatch 16.  Tom and Mindi read the lottery numbers only once weekdays.

What do you like?

Here is the debate.

You can get the numbers in a lot of places-- the internet, the newspaper, smart phone app, etc.  They constantly scroll at the bottom of your screen during our newscasts.  Do you want to hear them, too?

They do take up a lot of time.  Lottery games are at a record high.  There are a lot of numbers coming at you, and hitting you fast.  It's a lot if information to absorb.  Is giving the lottery numbers on television passe?

I doubt we're going to stop, but we really would like to know what you think.
