6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am

6:15 am
the landlords. today, the landlords will present their side of the dispute the plans they have to move lefty's to a new location. the landlord still insists lefty's will only be closing briefly for a remodel. happening today, a visit 108 years in the making. the chicago cubs travel to the white house to celebrate their world series victory. normally, baseball champions visit the white house during the following season, usually when they're playing somewhere nearby in washington or baltimore. but the cubbies chose to go before president obama leaves office, that's even though the president admits to being a fan of the rival chicago white sox. maybe that's why they're headed there. >> the white sox did win in 2005, so he can't be that mad. a lot of people what's going to wonder to the beloved franchise right here, the san francisco 49ers as the waiting game continues. now the question is, this is the only team without an nfl head coach at this point. who are they going to hire? team ceo jed york yesterday interviewed former oakland raiders head coach tom cable.
6:16 am
cable is currently the seattle seahawks' offensive line coach. the niners aren't just looking for a head coach. they're looking for a head coach and a general manager, and they can't interview staff members for teams that are still playing in the post-season. five other nfl head coaching vacancies have now been filled in the meantime. the niners, to what's next for the oakland raiders. another crucial step in a potential move for that team. we've learned that the raiders are preparing to officially file relocation papers to fly away to las vegas. once those papers are filed, the league and team owners will begin a several weeks' lock process that it would take to evaluate that potential move. that includes a vote of approval for the league's owners. that vote would happen this spring. 6:16 right now. a bombshell from ringling bros. this morning. after 146 years, the greatest show on earth will not go on. the reason is money and a steep drop in ticket prices.

"today in the bay's" pete suratos is joining us live at
6:32 am
the contra costra chp office this morning to explain what happened in this case. good morning, pete. >> reporter: yeah, good morning to you, laura, in that other case before we jump to this one in concord, that one was off of 80 in the east bay. still working to get a location on that. but that also happened over the weekend. when you look at it, there's been dozens of shootings on the east bay freeway, dating back to november 2015. we know they are targeted, according to chp, and most are gang related. let's show you this video from the freeway shooting that took place in concord yesterday afternoon. you can see the bullet holes in this black mercedes sedan. and according to chp, around 5:00 p.m., on southbound 242, that's just north of solano way in concord. there were two victims inside, one of the victims was hit, the injuries to that victim were nonlife-threatening. one of the victims was also detained, it's unclear as to why chp detained that individual. we do know to chp, the victims aren't exactly cooperating with investigators as far as giving them information on the possible suspect in this shooting. if you have any information, if

6:34 am
counts of attempted murder. he'd only been with the department since october. since he was still on standard job probation, the department was ab to fire him following his arrest. he's scheduled to appear in court tomorrow. an east bay night spot that has been the center of a recent controversy is soon going to close its doors for the last time. this is a live look right now at an empty crogan's in walnut creek. it's been in business for almost 40 years. but now the owners say that they plan to shut it down. now, this comes as city leaders recently ordered crogan's to top serving alcohol after 12:30, rather than the normal cutoff time of 2:00 a.m., because police were responding to what they say was far too often rowdy behavior. back in september, a man was shot and killed shortly after leaving crogan's. it was the city's first deadly shooting of the year. the owners are playing an all-day celebration on sunday. and they're going dloclose for last time a little bit after midnight that night. >> medical experts trying to determine if a woman found dead

6:36 am
dismantle obamacare. the house of representatives took the initial steps last week to do that. and replace it with a new system that trump so far has not specifically spelled out. protesters hear that millions of americans are going to lose their health coverage in the process. >> my stepson three years ago died of leukemia just before obamacare went into effect. and had he had obamacare, perhaps he wouldn't have died. >> similar rallies were held yesterday in about a half dozen other u.s. cities, that include newark, new jersey, and boston. well, journalists who cover the white house as part of the press corps have announced a formal objection to the trump transition team's idea to relocate the white house briefing room. vice president-elect mike pence and chief of staff reince priebus floated that plan out over the weekend. they say that moving the press corps to a larger location outside the white house would help to accommodate what they call extraordinary interest from the media. but critics call this an
6:37 am
eviction, pure and simple. president-elect trump has canceled his day trip to washington on this martin luther king jr. holiday the. it comes as the president-elect is in a public feud with civil rights icon, john lewis. >> that played out over twitter on the weekend. "today in the bay's" tracie potts joining us live in washington with that, plus mr. trump's latest comments that are making headlines as he prepares for the inauguration this friday, tracie. good morning. >> reporter: yeah, good morning. german officials are reacting this morning after he talked about their economy over the weekend, saying it's going to be pretty tough, they think, to work with him. meantime, not clear that his canceling of the visit today is related at all to this back and forth with congressman lewis, but we do know that some republicans are defending lewis. >> president-elect trump was supposed to visit the new african-american museum in washington today. his day transcriip abruptly can overnight. >> i don't see this president-elect as a legitimate
6:38 am
president. >> reporter: as trump advisers defend his tweets, criticizing congressman john lewis. >> donald trump has the right to defend himself. >> lewis and ten other democrats are boycotting friday's inauguration. trump advisers urge president obama to step in. >> to do this to president-elect trump, five days before he puts his hand on the bible, it's just wrong. >> my hope would be that the president-elect will reach out. >> reporter: president-elect trump making news criticizing the u.s. involvement in iraq. >> we've unleashed this, like throwing rocks into a beehive. >> reporter: back home, he tells "the washington post" his replacement plan for obamacare is almost ready. >> we're certainly not going to repeal it when our friends there don't even have a plan to recipe it with! >> rallies in 40 cities last weekend signaling trouble in congress. >> but if you think you're simply going to throw millions off of health insurance, you've got another guess coming.
