    I took a break from the business to start a family and build a Sports Media consultancy, but never lost the “bug.” 
    I am ecstatic to be back in the Carolinas, and back on air! I spent fifteen years in the broadcast new business before taking a break to start a family, write a book and build a Sports Media consultancy. While I certainly enjoyed my new directions, I never lost the “bug.”

    Earlier this week, North Carolina state lawmakers passed a bill to clean up some or the state's coal ash sites.  Another issue being discussed in Raleigh this week is "fracking."  We talked to a hydraulic fracturing supporter and an opponent.

Project STORM is a program with the Chester County Sheriff's Department in South Carolina.  It helps troubled teens curb negative behavior by giving them a taste of life behind bars.

We spoke with one of the teens who just completed the program, and his mom about why she made the tough decision to send her son to Project STORM.  And it has a lot to do with Jennifer Robinson's background.
 
She worked in the prison system before.  She told Barbara Lash that she just didn't want her son to end up like the inmates she's worked with. And she said she did this to "save his life."

14-year old Tyrone explains how it has changed his approach to dealing with the gangs in school.
