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.
What if the Bible isn’t what we’re told it is? Is it truly the “word of God,” as so many of the faithful hear it proclaimed, each Sunday? The answer is, well, maybe. There is a movement, today, that believes the Bible has been doctored over various editions and translations over the years. When the New Testament was translated from its original Greek to English, for example, those who did the work could choose from six or eight different words […]
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Marines are supposed to be tough. Jessica Rambo’s uncle Tommy always was. And so was Rambo – tough enough to be a Marine herself. Ten years, active duty, and with the name Rambo, she had to be tough. But a sexual assault while she was in the Corps combined by a car crash that almost killed her led to long-term problems. “And then I just knew, like, all of those things that they were training me, as […]
GREENSBORO, N.C. — When you have a condition that almost every doctor has never seen before, treatment can be expensive. First off, traditional methods haven’t seemed to work for Caitlin Little, who was hit on the side of the head at a cross country practice in 2017. Her collision with another runner was an accident, but the fallout from it is very real: Caitlin has anterograde amnesia, which means she wakes up each day with no memory of the day […]
For centuries, people took bees and their work for granted. They’re always there, right? And then, about a decade ago, many of them weren’t. There were entire colonies of honey bees that were collapsing. That’s why, when Phoebe Snyder tells people the kind of work she does with a lab at UNC-Greensboro, they light up. “Every time I tell people that I’m studying honey bees, they say, ‘Wow, that’s such important work, what you’re doing is really cool,’” says Snyder. […]
GREENSBORO, N.C. — By now, you probably know Caitlin Little’s story: She was accidentally hit in the head by a cross country teammate at her high school in October 2017. It left her with a traumatic brain injury and a condition called anterograde amnesia. Caitlin wakes up each morning with no memory of the day before. For 18 months – every day since the accident – she’s woken up thinking it’s Friday, October 13, 2017. The family asked us to […]
GREENSBORO, N.C. — It’s toughest for those who were closest to Caitlin Little before her accident to watch what she’s going through now. “It’s crushing to see a young lady who is so vibrant, so alive, so full of enthusiasm,” said John Woods, who is not only a close friend but the Little family’s pastor. “And, now, there’s almost a shell with Caitlin where that vibrancy has been diminished and it hurts.” Caitlin suffered a traumatic brain injury when she […]
STOKES COUNTY, N.C. — It started small. Doesn’t that always seem to be the way. Lexie Lovelace always loved animals, but she also loved meat … until she met Minnie Pearl. Well, that’s not exactly true, either. She still loves meat, she just doesn’t eat it, anymore. “They’re like small children,” she says, as she walks along the road next to three pens full of pigs of all sizes. “They have feelings, they can think.” Lexie and her partner took […]
When Caitlin Little suffered from a traumatic brain injury that left her with anterograde amnesia, her parents looked everywhere for answers. “It’s just going to take some time,” every doctor told them. Some said three weeks, some said three months … one even said it might be longer. “I realized when we got to about the six-month point and she hadn’t really improved much from, from that point forward that we were pretty much on our own,” says her father, […]
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Everything seems to be a bit upgraded for the “foodie generation.” Joe McGowan graduated from Wake Forest University with a degree in mathematical economics and knew he wanted to do something in business. But his passion was always food so he’s now making bratwurst go gourmet. “My family background has a lot of entrepreneurship in it for multiple generations so, in some sense, the interest has always been there to do something,” McGowan said. “The question has […]
GREENSBORO, N.C. — When you’re looking for answers to save what’s left of your daughter’s future, a three-hour drive to Asheville was nothing for Chris and Jennifer Little. “Oh, she came in for what we call the day of discovery where it’s a full five-hour battery of testing. The quantitative EEG or Q EEG is just a part of that,” Dr. Michael Trayford said. Trayford is the only physician trained in neurology who has both examined Caitlin and was willing […]
Every community has its identity. The Triangle is known for its universities and the Research Triangle Park. Charlotte is a banking hub. And the Triad, well, despite the rumors of its demise, manufacturing is still very big, here. “Guilford County is the largest manufacturing county in the state of North Carolina and the third largest in the southeast,” says Randy Gunter of Guilford Technical Community College. GTCC is one of four in the region working off a state grant that […]
GREENSBORO, N.C. — When Caitlin Little suffered a traumatic brain injury and, even more than a year later, couldn’t remember anything since the accident, her parents turned desperately to modern, medical science for answers … and what they got was a collective shrug. Doctor after doctor – the best specialists around – all said they couldn’t find anything wrong with her. Some suggested Caitlin might simply be choosing not to remember. And that’s when her parents went down the darkest road […]
