      Hi, West Coast Wondering!
      Many of New Day's West Coasters are DVRing the program to viewer when their day begins. We hope you'll consider doing the same.

      We love hearing from our viewers, so let us know if you decide to do this by writing to http://www.cnn.com/feedback.

      Have a super day!
