Southwest Louisiana is going to be on the national stage today as we will be represented this morning on NBC's 'The Today Show' for the series 'Wake up with Al'.

Lorie Coleman along with Patrick Scott Coleman and James Stanley from the Carlyss fire department appeared on the show a couple weeks ago as one of the three finalist for the "Wake up with Al" contest where Al Roker will come to your house and do the weather. Now Al and NBC is here.
