Bob always knew he was meant to live in North Carolina, it just took him a while to get here. He was born and raised in Chicago and went to the University of Missouri for Journalism school. After working in the “real world” for a year, he went back for his graduate degree in broadcast journalism and two days after graduating, found himself driving to North Carolina for a job as a sportscaster in Greenville. From there, he went to Washington State to be a sportscaster for a couple of years, before finding his way back to the Piedmont and making the switch to covering news.

You can see most of Bob’s work on the FOX8 10:00 News, and sometimes on our other newscasts. You’ll also see Bob filling in as an anchor occasionally. Politics, philosophy and literature are among his favorite subjects to read and discuss, when he’s not playing soccer or spending time with his wife, Jean-Marie, and their 4 children.

    Local small business owners take advantage of idea that works for them

    There’s something very American about wanting to own your own business. But it isn’t easy. “It’s not easy but it’s much more rewarding,” says Brittany Shepherd, who has been a licensed massage therapist for 7 years. What Brittany and so many other entrepreneurs were looking for was another way to do it. “I always wanted my own salon – that was my biggest dream, in the world,” says Lisa Carlyle. But she didn’t like the “drama” that comes with having […]

    Local students learn about the Gulf Stream with messages in bottles

    Sometimes it pays to go low-tech. Just ask Mrs. Schambach’s class. Susan Schambach teaches second grade at Summit School in Winston-Salem and decided that the best way to teach her students about something like the Gulf Stream isn’t to stare at paragraphs and a chart in a textbook … it was to drop something into it and see what happens. Two years ago, Paul McManus did and, now, “Everybody thinks I’m famous,” says Paul (now a fourth grader at the […]

    Alamance County inmates earn GEDs after participating in jail program

    ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. — You can list this under the things you’ll rarely hear a sheriff say to one of his jail inmates: “We’re very proud of both of y’all. I’m telling you that, right now.” Those were the words of Alamance County sheriff, Terry Johnson, recently to inmates Carlos Zarate and Gary Howard. If that doesn’t surprise you, try this one from the man whose office likely was the one who put Zarate and Howard in jail: “I can’t […]

    Corpsman reunion 50 years in the making

    It was a moment 50 years in the making. “We went on the internet, we found one, one found another and we wound up with 32 out of 72,” says Bob Holt. Holt lived most of his adult life in Greensboro but his 71 classmates from their Navy corpsman group were spread out all over the country. God bless the internet. Holt’s class was put together in 1966, just as American involvement in Vietnam was hitting a fever pitch. They […]

    Sunnyside Ministry provides local families with food

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — At the Sunnyside Ministry in south Winston-Salem, their main concern is finding enough food to provide more than a quarter of a million meals, every year. “Our clients really like getting the fresh produce, because that’s something they don’t often see,” says David Holston, Sunnyside’s director. They don’t often see who provides some of the food and that might surprise them because hundreds of pounds of that food … come from the correctional facility, across town. “A […]

    Surry County man shares story of divorce, ‘Silver Bullet Technique’

    SURRY COUNTY, N.C. — “You’re probably not going to believe this story,” the caller said. And most people hadn’t. It took three years of Neil Shelton calling and telling the latest chapter — along with some investigation — to see the pattern. “Yeah, it’s fantastic but, when you look at the facts, it’s what he says it is,” says Michael Volpe. Volpe is an investigative journalist who has written a book about this pattern — prolific enough to have its own title: The […]

    Unique homeopathic approach happening at Buncombe County farm

    BUNCOMBE COUNTY, N.C. — To drive across Dr. Frank King’s farm is to think you’re in Jurassic Park. It is filled with bison and elk and camels … or what Dr. King calls, “medicine.” As a homeopathic physician, Dr. King believes in feeding our bodies what it ate for millennia before modern, more synthetic food came around. “Natural medicine is what created the positive gene expressions and synthetic drugs were causing negative gene expressions,” says Dr. King. So he has […]

    HPU students connect across the generation gap through poetry

    Elaine Walker loves to see the kids coming through the door. “It’s very good for we older people, I think,” says Elaine. They aren’t her grandchildren but, in some ways, they might as well be. “I think the best part is being able to come back and grow relationships with the member each time we come back,” says Daniella Santo. Daniella is one of several High Point University students who take a class with professor Allison Walker.  Walker’s class teaches […]

    Bob Buckley talks to cart driver who was arrested, handcuffed at Pinehurst

    “The post-script is more bizarre than the actual incident,” says Jeff Rude. Rude was covering the 2014 US Open golf tournament in Pinehurst when he saw most of it unfold. Tommy Lineberry is a man from Greensboro who was – as he often had, in the past – working with his longtime friend, Roger Maltbie, at the Open. Lineberry and Maltbie met 40 years ago, when Maltbie was rookie on the PGA Tour. They became fast friends and, once Maltbie […]

  • Bob Buckley explores immunotherapy

    When you meet Janet Mazzurco, you soon find out you should not be able too. “The truth is, I should absolutely not be here,” she’ll tell you. “I was told I had 120 days to live and to get my business in order.” That’s because she developed the deadly skin cancer, melanoma. “Prior to immunotherapy, people just, people just died from this disease,” says her oncologist, Frances Collichio, at UNC’s Lineberger Cancer Center. At one point, with traditional treatment, Janet […]

    A look back at the history of banking in the Piedmont Triad

    Little decisions can have huge consequences — and, often, you have no idea how big. Just ask Luther Hodges. “You could have had the North Carolina National Bank here,” Hodges says. Wait, what? “We were formed — we, NCNB, North Carolina National Bank — to compete with Wachovia Bank. A lot of it had to do with the wisdom of a couple of Jefferson Standard directors who realized that they didn’t have the management to develop a bank to compete […]

    Lambeth-Troxler offers DNA of deceased loved ones

    “I think technology is what’s going to boost the innovation in the industry.” You probably wouldn’t find that statement remarkable from a business executive … unless you learned that it was the funeral industry. Al Fair is with Lambeth-Troxler and is in his third decade in the industry. “I’ve seen a little bit of change,” says Fair. The latest is something Lambeth-Troxler is the only company offering, right now: saving the loved one’s DNA. Fair admits it catches some people […]
