Kevin Miller begins the program by previewing the upcoming House vote on impeachment. Kevin Miller takes calls from listeners responding to his topic. Kevin Miller reports on a topic that is trending nationally. As users nationwide report that their Amazon Ring security cameras are being taken over by hackers, one family in Tennessee says that not only did their camera to their daughters' bedroom get infiltrated but the hacker harassed their children through the camera's two-way microphone. The mother of four told Today that she bought the Ring on a special Black Friday sale and installed it in the bedroom of two of her daughters. Video reveals a hacker watching and speaking to one of the girls while she came into her room, using racial slurs and telling her to "mess up the room" and "smash the TV". The hacker also played Tiny Tim's "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" which was used in a 2010 horror film and told the 8-year-old to trust him because he was Santa Claus. The girl, terrified, left her room where her parents discovered that the camera was hacked and disconnected it immediately. Hacked users aren't happy with Amazon's customer support for issuing "blanket statements" and even blaming the hacks on the users. The family says their children are afraid to sleep in their rooms now saying that they don't feel safe in their own home.
