Live interview on program to combat obesity in SWLA

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The number of overweight and obese people in Southwest Louisiana is soaring - 37 percent in Calcasieu Parish alone.  Tune in for a live interview on a free program to get local folks walking and on a path to healthier living.

*We're learning more this morning about the man who leaked top-secret information about the government's phone and e-mail surveillance programs.  The hunt is on for 29-year-old Edward Snowden.  Find out why the government wants to find him before one of our enemies does.

*Two witches and a snitch: that best describes this week's new offerings in home entertainment!  There are also a couple of TV series that could make good Father's Day gifts.  We'll have your video view.

*I'll tell you about a new clinical trial open to families in our area that hopes to link a person's genes to autism.

Make it a Sunrise day!
