From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Concerns over the Ebola Virus continue to grow. Many people around the country are worried the government isn't doing all that it can to help prevent the spread. We'll bring you the very latest on the cases and what's being done. Plus, Gerron Jordan gives you a look at the next step for the BRAVE Program in Baton Rouge. Their efforts have paid off in the past, so what's next. And speaking of fighting back against crime, BRPD's big “Night Out Against Crime” is tonight. We'll tell you where and what will be on hand for the kids to enjoy and of course, drive the message home. We'll see you for 9NTM, The Big Extra Hour, and The Early Edition at 4:30 a.m.
