  • Hot idea earns TV gig


    Wyatt Hurst of Shelbyville will be making his television debut at an extremely early age – in fact, he’s so young, he probably won’t even remember it when he’s grown.

    Hurst, a tender 2 years old, will appear on America’s Funniest Home Videos (ABC-WHAS-Ch. 11) on Sunday night at 7.

    The toddler is the younger child of Josh and Malia Hurst, who also have a 4-year-old, Sophie.
