COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) - The Ohio State Marching Band is getting a lot of national attention for its eye-popping half-time shows
We learned the secret of how they do it during NBC's Today Show Wednesday morning.
"This season, for the first time, the band is using a special iPad app, making learning these complicated routines in less than a week much easier."
When they practice, band members march in formation wearing iPads around their necks showing each member a moving display of where they need to be as the complex displays unfold.
The Buckeye band has been getting rave reviews for their tributes to Michael Jackson, video games and many more.
Among those band members making headlines, local Arcanum grad and now drum corps member Mark Albright.
Albright's father, Doug, is also the Arcanum band director.
Albright isn't the only Miami Valley member of the band. Justin Castle of Kenton Ridge and Ryan Thomas from Brookville are also members.
A 29-year-old Farmersville man is dead after he was attacked Friday at the downtown RTA bus hub.
Huber Heights Police are turning to the public for help identifying two men who they say used a stolen credit card at the Target store in their city.
Multiple ambulance crews have been called to the scene of an accident involving a school bus in Beavercreek.
The shops rely on holiday sales to keep doors open, but instead snow and ice shut many of them down for several days.
