VB (right), Fox 25s morning personality, was at Market Basket filming one of several features that will be broadcast during Fox's "Zip Trip" morning news show being aired live from the Admirals Hill Marina on Friday from 6-10 a.m. The public is invited to attend the production, which will feature live and taped segments on various people and aspects of Chelsea. Pictured with VB are local store manager Kevin Feoli and corporate manager Jay Rainville.

All of Greater Boston will be watching Chelsea on Friday morning as the Fox 25 Zip Trip Morning Show pays a live visit to Admiral’s Hill, and they’re calling on all Chelsea residents to come down and get involved in the show.

Every Friday morning during the summer months, the morning news team on Fox 25 visits a different city or town in New England. The team will set up on Admiral’s Hill at 305 Commandants Way and the live broadcast will go from 6-10 a.m.

Co-hosts will include Shannon Mulaire, Gene Lavanchy,  Meteorologist Cindy Fitzgibbon and News Commentator Doug “VB” Goudie. In addition to the live segments, the team has already been in Chelsea filming special segments at many of the popular local haunts, including one segment at the Market Basket.

“Neighbors, residents, and kids of all ages who want to share their ‘Chelsea Pride’ are encouraged to be part of our live audience,” read a release from the station. “We’ll have special guests and features that celebrate the unique qualities of Chelsea. Meet the people, discover the places, and see specialty food demonstrations from local restaurants and cafe´s.”

Featured segments include:

•Home Town Team: Salute to a youth or senior team – from youth sports like softball and soccer to the local running club.

•Zip Trip Trivia: VB tries to stump a special guest (town selectman, town character, well-known resident) with trivia about their city/town.

•HomeTown Hero: A local member of the community who did a good deed or community service will be featured on how they made a difference.

•On the Market: What’s it like to live in the city/town and how much do houses cost? We show three homes in three price points, look at schools, services and recreation.

•Firehouse Fridays: A local fire station and firefighters will be honored for all they do.

•Zip Trip Fan of the Week: We’ll pick someone from the crowd with true Zip Trip Spirit as our Fan of the Week.

•High Speed Deal: On-site scavenger hunt.

•Zip Trip Jr. Reporter. We’ll select a kid from the crowd each week to help us with a few reporter duties at the Zip Trip.

•Town Tour: A FOX25 Morning New Team member gets the lay of the land from a Townie. Check out the best eats, must-see places,  entertainment and hidden gems, little known landmarks!

During the show, there will be prizes, games, and free products (while supplies last).
