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.

    Cece Heil minces no words. “This is a sham trial,” she says, without hesitation. Heil is the executive senior counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice, which has been representing Andrew Brunson since the beginning of his ordeal. It was an ordeal that few saw coming.

  • Triad movie maker talks about the film industry and his latest project

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — You could just tell, when you meet him, that Brett Haley is a little different. Not as in odd – just talented and focused. He went to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts to learn to be a film director and that’s what he has become – not doing the big, studio-backed features yet, but that may come. And you wouldn’t be able to tell, watching his latest feature, “Hearts Beat Loud.” It looks […]

  • 7th annual Greensboro Beard and Mustache Club Contest

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — You’ve never seen so much hair in your life. Beards and mustaches dangling from every face, as far as the eye can see. It’s the seventh annual Greensboro Beard and Mustache Club Contest. And they take it seriously. “What dangles from your face is not a fad,” says contestant Johnny Ivey, a contestant and president of the Cape Fear Follicles of Freedom, based in Fayetteville. “I know it’s kind of grown to lengths of everybody wanting to […]

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — “Hey, how are you doing?” asks Lauren West-Livingston, a third-year medical student at Wake Forest School of Medicine, part of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. “I’ve got this cough I can’t seem to shake,” notes her patient, for this day, Jeff Sparks. But, just like the famous TV commercial from a couple of decades ago, where the actor looks into the camera and says, “I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV,” Sparks is playing […]

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Ray Holliman watched as the massive fire on the south side of downtown Greensboro nearly consumed the area around Washington and Davie streets. “They had already kind of written off the south end of this block and they just wanted to protect the exposures,” says Ray. If that sounds like the kind of thing a firefighter would say, it should. Ray was part of the Greensboro Fire Department working to save the structures – including one he […]

  • Old mills being revitalized around the Triad

    The old guys are cool again. For decades, American cities tore down what had been built throughout the 20th century to make way for the modern. Of course, they didn’t get to everything — a lot of the buildings from both the 20th century and a few even older survived — and now, the current generation of entrepreneurs is seeing its value and capitalizing on it. The key root word there is “capital.” Because it takes expert capitalism to make […]

  • Friends start new film production company in Greensboro

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — In an era when it seems much of the film industry is rushing to get out of North Carolina … Nick Westfall and Jake Camp are rushing back in. “It’s a reversal of expectations,” says Nick Westfall, fully confident of what he’s doing. “We’re trying to start a tidal wave of film – bringing films here to North Carolina and bringing film opportunities to young kids, right out of school.” Not too long ago, Nick was that […]

  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was scheduled to be in Greensboro the day he was killed

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — When Americans today think of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the places they most associate him with are his hometown of Atlanta and Memphis, where he was assassinated as he and his colleagues were leaving the Lorraine Motel to go to dinner on April 4, 1968. What most people don’t realize is the role Greensboro could have played in that drama. King was due to be in Greensboro on April 4, 1968 – a Thursday, that year […]

  • Raleigh offers pay-what-you-can restaurant

    RALEIGH, N.C. — It seems like some sort of social science experiment – and, after all, it is in the middle of a college town. But Maggie Kane’s restaurant is very much a business. It’s just that the prices on the menu are all “suggested.” You pay what you can. “We say we need 80 percent of people paying the suggested price or more, 20 percent of people paying less or volunteering the meal, and we do,” Kane said. That’s […]

  • Local filmmaker creates documentary about red wolves

    There was no major at Jeff Mittelstadt’s prestigious school titled, “Dr. Doolittleism.” But that’s okay, he didn’t want to talk to the animals so much as know what they were thinking. “At Davidson College, I got my degree in psychology but that was because of my interest in animal cognition and behavior,” Jeff says about his education. “And then, while in psychology, I got interested in how do people disagree – different stakeholders – how do they interact with each […]

    ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. — After a half century of farming, Ray Styers is finally seen as an innovator. “I was probably considered strange from the day I got here,” said Ray, with a chuckle. He and his wife, Sara, have had a dairy farm in the southern end of Rockingham County for more years than they can count. What set Ray apart was he was one of the few farmers in the area who started doing no-till farming back in […]
