Tonight on Local 4: Two primetime specials -- what to know

Special hour starts at 8 p.m. on Local 4 and ClickOnDetroit

All 4 Pets Special at 8 p.m., followed by Aaliyah Special at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 15

Tonight on Local 4 -- we’ve got two primetime specials coming your way, starting at 8 p.m. Both are available on TV and streaming online.

At 8 -- catch Local 4′s newest All 4 Pets special! We’ve got awesome stories including:

  • Come along on a photo shoot with a professional pet photographer. Kat Ku shows what makes her work unique, and shares ideas to make your next impromptu “phone photo” session with your pet yield better results.
  • Fall migration is in full swing, with many birds making their way south for the winter after summering here in Michigan to have their babies. One woman has multiple camera setups in her backyard to catch the action as birds go about their daily business.
  • We’re used to the idea of homeless dogs and cats looking for their forever families, but sometimes more unusual pets need to be adopted too. Saving Grace Miniature Horse Rescue in Saint Clair County offers safe haven for the smallest equines who often have nowhere else to turn.

You can watch the All 4 Pets special live on Local 4 -- or stream on Local 4+ (free to download on your Smart TV device), or right here on ClickOnDetroit.

At 8:30 -- watch our special half-hour program on Aaliyah.

Aaliyah, also known as “Babygirl,” or the “Princess of R&B,” was one of the biggest stars in music and entertainment at the time of her tragic, untimely death in 2001. Aaliyah, who grew up in Detroit, left a lasting impact on those who worked with her, and those who supported her.

Local 4′s Karen Drew has spent months interviewing some of the people who were closest to Aaliyah. Watch the special program on Local 4 at 8:30, or stream it live here, or on your TV with the Local 4+ streaming app.
