Brooklyn - Two young girls recently aspired to launch their own newscast. The video, beginning to go viral on YouTube, features the girls customizing their own weather and news report.
The one minute clip of video was shot on Mon., Jan. 16 and the girls called it "The News with Franny and Sofia."
The clip opens up with the weather, which was blustery and cold that day in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Franny, holding her bright yellow microphone, shares with the audience the day's high of 37 and low of 34 degrees, and comments, "but it's a little colder than that, isn't it Sofia?"

Sophia replies with a "Yep-e-doodle," and looks up from the Apple laptop she's working on to share a giggle.
The weather report offers illustrations along with other news of the day.
In the Jan. 16 report, the girls shared, complete with hand-drawn images, the falling of a billboard that had occurred over the weekend in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn.

YouTube user chicobot uploaded Franny and Sofia's news report on Jan 19, 2012, with a comment, "F & S report the news from earlier in the week. They kept insisting on making this, so I indulged them. Installed iMovie on my phone and one subway ride later.. voila."
At the time of writing, over 20,000 viewers have visited the girls' video on YouTube.
