Good morning to you on this Thursday, 6 September 2012, from the WBTV News morning team...John Carter reporting to you this morning.
A lot to tell you about when you join us from 4:30 to 7:00 AM...and a lot of it has to do with traffic in the uptown Charlotte area! Because the Democratic National Convention has moved tonight's events from Bank of America Stadium to Time Warner Cable Arena...traffic patterns are being adjusted. Astrid Martinez joins us live with a look at the changes...and Tonya Rivens will have plenty of alternate routes from the First Alert Traffic center.
President Obama is in Charlotte this morning...and later tonight, he'll accept his party's nomination for president. That follows a crowd-rousing speech from former President Bill Clinton last night as he made the nomination for Mr. Obama. We'll have plenty of highlights from last night's activities, which went well into the late evening.
More protest activity outside the DNC...Cam Man Ron Lee will join us live to tell us what's been happening...and what to expect later today, the last day of the DNC.
This morning, police are conducting a homicide investigation in north Charlotte. The victim is 25 years old and was apparently shot during an altercation. No one has been arrested for the shooting.
We have highlights and results from the NFL season opener...the Dallas Cowboys taking on the New York Giants. The defending Super Bowl champions did not win the game!
Plus...I'll take you behind the scenes of CBS This Morning! You'll hear my interviews with Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell as they're in Charlotte broadcasting from Time Warner Cable arena.
