Good morning! It's Monday, August 25. This is Christine Nelson in the WBTV newsroom. I just wanted to let you know we're on the air now until 9 a.m. on WBTV and Bounce TV.
First Day of School!
Happy first day of the school to the 15 school districts starting the 2014-15 school year today: Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, Cabarrus County Schools, Gaston County Schools, Union County Schools, Anson County Schools, Burke County Schools, Caldwell County Schools, Alexander County Schools, Cleveland County Schools, Lincoln County Schools, Catawba County Schools, Iredell-Statesville Schools, Rowan-Salisbury Schools, Stanley County Schools and Richmond County Schools.
It's safe to say it's going to be a busy morning for many of you! We have the most reliable back-to-school team coverage. Multiple reporters will be live letting you know what to expect today in your school district. We live interviews with superintendents in multiple districts. Our traffic team is here to let you know of any problem spots whether you're taking a student to school or heading out the door for work.
A lot of the information we're reporting on air will be pushed on social media. Make sure you're also keeping us with us on:
