With the Waco skyline, unmistakable Suspension Bridge and shining Lake Brazos as the backdrop, hundreds of Waco residents turned out for a live Friday morning broadcast of The CBS Early Show with weatherman Dave Price.

There was quite a Baylor flavor, too, as Joy, one of Baylor's bear mascots, and her trainers made an appearance on the national morning show. Baylor yell leaders, Bruiser the Bear, and Judge the inflatable mascot also were on hand, as well as several Baylor students, who held up signs encouraging President Bush to locate his library at Baylor.

Price was in Waco as part of the Early Show's "Great American Vacation" tour. For more on the CBS Early Show broadcast, go to KWTX.com.

KWTX's morning show, "News 10 This Morning," also was live from downtown Waco, and featured Joy, as well as Dr. Dub Oliver, Baylor's vice president for student life, and Tommye Lou Davis, director of Baylor's Bush Library project.
