ABC News Radio details July 4 specials


ABC News Radio will offer three one-hour specials for use over the Fourth of July Holiday. They include: "Fourth of July LIVE, ""ABC's Sunsational Summer 2007," and "The John Stossel Special:  Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity."

ABC News Radio Correspondent Todd Ant will host "Fourth of July LIVE." The show will preview Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest from New York's historic Coney Island and take a look inside the life of a competitive eater. The program will also feature a look back at the glory days of Coney Island before its amusement park closes forever.

ABC News Radio Correspondent Hilarie Barsky will host "ABC's Sunsational Summer 2007." The special will take an in-depth look at how to make the most of your summer – from why vacations are necessary, to profiles of top beaches and the cheapest way to get to the them, the best books to read and fashion dos and don'ts.

"Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity," is an attempt to find the truth behind some very common beliefs. ABC News Correspondent and "20/20" co-host John Stossel investigates: does gun control really reduce crime?  Do opposites attract?  Does even a little second-hand smoke hurt?  And if you drop a penny from a tall building, will it kill someone?
