This entry consists of two reports from DWS News Reporter Tim Ditman. Report one aired on 12/13/12 and is the final report in a series of investigative reports on a local bus company that Ditman produced from July-December. For this particular report, DWS was the first news outlet to report this bit of news.
Report two (at 1:19) aired on 6/4/12 and profiles a soldier who used his leave time to join his family in participating in a nationwide tour, where specialty car enthusiasts drove their vehicles from town to town. On this particular day, the Hot Rod Power Tour had stopped in Champaign. In addition to airing on the day on the tour stop, the story aired the following day when then caravan on cars were departing the area. During that time, the lead-in to the story was modified slightly to read as follows: "After entertaining the masses yesterday in Champaign, the thousands of drivers on the Hot Rod Power Tour are rolling out of town this morning. Tim Ditman has the story of one car enthusiast who took some special time out to be on this year's tour."
