'This Just In' enters 10th season

NNPS-TV is starting its 10th season of its signature show, "This Just In." The program began production in March of 2010, and 476 episodes have been produced and aired since then.

When it first began, "This Just In" was shot in that new-fangled thing called HD. Apple had just unveiled the iPad, and NNPS-TV Production Specialist Aaron Moore had only one of his five children!
