    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.”

A Waffle House customer gave waitress Shaina Brown a $1,000 tip on Mother's Day morning.

"I was just amazed that something like this happened," Brown, a single mother of three, told My FOX Carolinas. Brown works two jobs to make ends meet.

The excitement was short lived after Waffle House refunded the customer's credit card, stating company policy that larger tips must be given via cash or check. 

Brown said she didn't know about the policy beforehand, otherwise she would've stopped the customer from putting the tip on his credit card.

She said she went through weeks of humiliation over the returned tip.

This story out of Raleigh has a happy ending. Once the man found out his tip had been returned, he met with Brown and wrote her a personal check for the same amount.

Brown says she's trying to figure out what to do with the money.
