Occupy Charlotte Protesters Making A Stand; McCrory To Announce Run For Governor; Monster Slam Dunk

Good morning on this Tuesday...the last day of January 2012!  John Carter here from the WBTV News This Morning team.  Be sure to join us starting at 4:30 am...we have a lot to tell you!

Right now police in uptown Charlotte are monitoring the situation at the Occupy Charlotte site at Old City Hall...this coming a day after a new ordinance went into effect that prohibits camping on city property.  Cam Man Ron Lee has a live report.

Former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory will make it official today...he's going to run for North Carolina Governor.  We talk to him in a one-on-one interview.

Today is a major day in Campaign 2012.  Florida holds its primary today.  Derrick Rose will be live with a special report that compares female voting patterns in South Carolina and how they're expected to compare to those in Florida.

We've got highlights from a big local college basketball game...Johnson C. Smith taking on Winston Salem State University.

And video you have to see!  A MONSTER JAM in the NBA that has everyone in the newsroom talking!  We've watched it at least a dozen times...you won't want to miss it!

Plus...another cold start to the morning...but it's going to get a lot warmer today.  We'll have your First Alert Weather forecast.

All that and so much more...we'll see you from 4:30 to 7 this morning!
