Join us today for 7 News at Noon!

Good morning! Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for today's 7News@Noon

He's in it to win it!!!  Joshua Ledet is in the top 3 on American Idol and he's coming home to celebrate with all is fans. A parade is scheduled for noon tomorrow in Westlake with a concert and pep rally at Burton Coliseum tomorrow night. The woman who has been in direct contact with the show and has been planning the big day will join us in the studio live at noon with all the details.  In the meantime, you can always go HERE  to see all of Josh's past performances and other info on the lake area's favorite Idol.

Also today, bunnies that were abandoned after the Easter holiday are doing what bunnies do – reproducing at an astonishing rate.  So now there is a problem with overcrowding at the largest bunny rescue operation in the southwest.  We'll meet the woman who takes care of all the rabbits. 

Plus, the FDA is cracking down on what sunscreen makers can claim on their products.  We'll tell you which sunscreen is the best to use for the upcoming summer months. 

Some sun would be nice this weekend considering all the big Joshua Ledet events and other activities scheduled.  However, Ben is being a bit of a party-pooper.  He says you can expect some rain on and off during the day on Saturday, but when will it all leave the area?  He's working on that full, local, up-to-the-minute forecast right now. 

We hope you join us at noon where we expect to have some exciting news about something we're planning for tomorrow's big events!

Remember, you can watch us on air and on kplctv.com each and every weekday. 

Be careful out there, and have a wonderful day.  See you at noon!
