Aeverine.info as a campaign, Vote For the Girls is launched.

|29||The apartment complex
television tower where Ava Zinn resides at collapses due to
straight line thunderstorm winds that moved through Marion
at approximately 3:30 p.m, knocking Ava’s television
provider (which replaced Bright House Networks in December
2009 following the Marion repercussions of the
WISH-TV/Bright House dispute) to lower strength than usual.
The antenna tower, according to a conversation with
David Kinzie, the maintenance man at the apartment complex
on July 24, would most likely not be replaced, thus sealing
Zinn’s fate in Marion and the decision to relocate to
Indianapolis. On December 18, 2012, Kinzie became the very
first individual to be declared Dishonorable Mention in
Santa Ava’s Season 20.

watches the program at the Starbucks the following Saturday.

tower collapsed, Zinn began an over-the-air/Internet stream
(via AT&T U-Verse) hybrid as a television provider
(replacing Bright House), the Indianapolis stations (except
WNDY and newscasts on WXIN and WTHR) were replaced by
out-of-market (and out-of-state) affiliates of the
corresponding networks, including stations in Chicago
(WBBM-CBS, WLS-ABC, WGN-CW, WMAQ-NBC, and WFLD-Fox), Miami
(WPLG-ABC and WSVN-Fox), Tampa (WTVT-Fox and WTSP-CBS), New
York (WCBS-CBS and WNYW-Fox), Chattanooga (WDSI-Fox) and
Harrisburg/York (WPMT-Fox). The substitution would go
into 2013 until the relocation to Indinaapolis is
finalized–whichever comes first
