Hello and good morning - it's Christine Nelson. Today is Wednesday, August 1. Before I go on the set I wanted to send you a quick email on the stories we're covering on WBTV News This Morning. Tune in! We're on from 4:30-7:00 a.m.
Our live report this morning is coming from west Mecklenburg County where the same bank got robbed twice in less than a week! The latest hit happened yesterday at a Wells Fargo branch. In both cases a gun was used. WBTV's Cam Man Ron Lee got his hands on surveillance so you're going to get a good look at the robbers. We're asking this morning was this the same brazen robber who hit the same bank twice? Hopefully you can help police solve this case before this person strikes again or someone gets hurt.
Also, another needle has been found in a sandwich on a major airline. (I know, not again!) We'll tell you which airline it happened on and how a passenger was able to spot it.
It's the first day of August...the day many have dubbed "Chick-fil-a Day." How supporters will be coming out today to back the company's same-sex marriage stance.
Can you guess who is the all-time winningest Olympian? Here's a clue: His overall medal count just went to 19! (Not bad!)
Stay with us through our 6 a.m. hour. We're bringing you all new stories you haven't heard yet. Plus every 10 minutes, meteorologist Al Conklin and Katie Garner will be giving you weather and traffic updates to help you plan your morning and get you where you need to go on time.
We'll see you on the air!
