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.

    Unique homeopathic approach happening at Randolph County farm

    RANDOLPH 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 […]

    Bob Buckley explores the history of Cone Mills

    There was a time, around the Triad – and certainly around Greensboro – that if someone asked you where you were from, you didn’t say the city, you said something like, “I’m from White Oak,” or, “I’m from Revolution.” Those were the textile mills around which the owners – The Cone and Sternberger families – built entire communities.  The Cones built not just the factories and houses the families lived in but the YMCA they played at and the school […]

    ASPCA helping dogs with behavioral issues, building new NC facility

    You see stories on the news on a regular basis about dogs rescued from puppy mills or hoarding situations. What is often not reported is the plethora of behavioral issues all these dogs leave those situations with. “The primary cause of all of these problems is simply under-socialization,” says Kristen Collins of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. “Under-socialized, fearful dogs have a lot of difficulty dealing with pretty much everything normal, adopted dogs experience.” But, […]

    Meet the Piedmont Triad’s own Donald Trump

    To be the man, you have to do more than bear his name. But a Triad man named Donald Trump can say: “I’ve been to Trump Tower.” And he’s meet that other Donald as well. “I would consider him an acquaintance,” says this Donald Trump. “We don’t play golf together.” Before the New York Donald Trump began running for president, having that name was a little different. “Back then it used to be pretty much all positive,” The Piedmont’s Trump said.

    Man’s quest for release after rape conviction

    They were the last words Norman Satterfield and his family wanted to hear: “It’s not going to happen, today.” But that’s what their attorney Mark Rabil had to tell them. Rabil and his students at Wake Forest University’s Innocence and Justice Clinic have been working for more than two years to prove that Satterfield was not the man who raped a woman in Statesville, on March 14, 1979. But Satterfield was convicted of that rape – identified by the victim – […]

    North Carolina State scientist creates metal foam

    RALEIGH, N.C. — “It will be the next bubble wrap.” Bubble wrap wishes it was this stuff. Sure, bubble wrap gets your latest purchase from Amazon safely to your door … but can it block nuclear radiation? Can it stop a speeding bullet? This stuff can. This “stuff” is called metal foam and it’s the work of North Carolina State scientist Afsaneh Rabiei. We first introduced you to her six years ago when she and the National Science Foundation were […]

    Byron Williams talks ‘shirts and skins politics’

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — When you call your media voice “The Public Morality,” you’ve set the bar high. And that’s just fine with Byron Williams. Though he considers himself a teacher, don’t expect him to have all the answers. “Nobody is in sole possession of the truth,” says Byron. “Everybody speaks as if I’m in sole possession of the truth. So, if you disagree with me, I don’t even have to acknowledge you, because I have the truth. And it’s that […]
