NEW: U.S. Airways employees in Charlotte on the picket line

Good morning! It's Wednesday, April 24. This is Christine Nelson. I've been going through the rundown and just wanted you to get the information first on the stories we'll be covering. We're on the air live from 4:30-7:00 a.m. Remember, you can also watch a live stream of the newscast during that time on your smartphone, computer or tablet.

LIVE: WBTV's Cam Man Ron Lee got a tip that some U.S. Airways employees will be picketing this morning at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. We found out there will be more than a dozen mechanics out there. He's getting questions answered this morning on what their demands are. Will flights that are already delayed by the sequester be impacted? Watch his live report.

Also, we're getting key information on the bullet points Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson used to convince Charlotte City Council to spend taxpayer dollars to renovate Bank of America stadium. One of them is that the Panthers couldn't afford it on their own. We'll tell you the others.

It's signing day! We're not talking about sports but a high-profile bill we've been telling you about that is about to get Governor Pat McCrory's signature and will change the fate of child abusers.

It's time for me to go now. I will see you on the air this morning!

Christine
