From The Newsroom: The State Fair Sets Another Record; Faith Forum In Plano

Krystina Martinez

The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: The State Fair of Texas sold more than $52 million in food and ride coupons this year, beating its previous record of $42 million in sales.

The fair doesn’t measure attendance in ticket sales, but rather, the number of coupons it sells.

Other stories this morning:

  • Candidates vying for the Republican presidential nomination attended a faith forum yesterday at a Plano mega-church
  • Early voting begins for a different kind of election. Texas voters will consider whether to add another seven amendments to the state constitution.
  • In this edition of Vital Signs, we dig into a new study on the amount of exercise needed to reduce the risk of heart failure.

You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m.
