Fly on the Wall 1383 

Hittin' the Quan, Awgowhat, and a negative graffiti message.

Interpretive News 5

According to Cosmopolitan, "WMC Action News 5's morning team is pretty baller." The cascading accolades had less to do with the mostly female news team's reporting skills than its dance moves and ability to attract admiring website comments. Cosmo writer Laura Beck said WMC's "Hit the Quan" clip was so dadgum baller she was almost inspired to move to Memphis.

This isn't the first time the WMC's morning squad has put on a show. Before "Hit the Quan" became an internet sensation, they went viral with a clip teaching viewers how to "whip," "nae nae," and do the "stanky leg."

Memphisness

Leo Awgowhat, the longshot serial candidate running for mayor of Memphis, was arrested for allegedly painting "AwGoWhat" on the statue of a slave trader in Health Sciences Park. In an affidavit, Awgowhat said the vandalism was inspired by an alternate personality named Awgo.
