Nearly steady into the upper thirties today a little more us note to the west and northwest of the Charlotte area uptown area. Winds are about five to ten miles per hour not a big deal chance of precipitous here 100%. Now I'd say they nailed that one. Tonight rain. Then that mixes with snow overnight we're seeing a low tonight of about 32 degrees. You'll wake up tomorrow the snow will start to taper off. If you're in the high country you could do or Hickory your areas like that you could season accumulation here. What they're called primarily for less than an inch.

We saw the air conditioning on here in the studio. But that's only because the rest of the building is being run by. Southerners. On old people. And knows what he fears on the hall. He sees herself like that. So I worry about or new world warmer here than we normally are where we're probably. Sixties hit it's bad at that. You know we we were toasted up from a normal 65. So oil. But ganguly did it were a little worried Doug that we can have funnel clouds because when you open up to studio door in the hot air against the cold there it's it did tends to kind of but get our own wintering mix right here in the halls one Julian price placed before it's also and on what who want to it's just a little excites an experiment to where Elektra. We like to do here. Do you suppose there's a meter someplace that shows that there's still an air conditioner running someplace in the building because I was just over in the newsroom TV newsroom. Where my wife says and they got it over there they've got it to. Disease knows hardening hot. So I hazardous weather outlook in effect for our Charlotte today.

But I do remember that two years ago we were all crowded around a Jimmy Nick's barbecue pit.

I'm and then about Iraq for the current stark terror you had banned and so forth and just some people in your around the community who work. Better than average but young talent. Oh lead when that said that apple pursche gear you were built back and I'll work. Yet. Then you know I go back into the Atlantic in two weeks we got a stack or trolling.

And as you well know 500 bucks us is. 500 bucks is 500 bucks will will take that 500 bucks and turn it Windows 7 150 bucks. Yeah exactly. Exactly so it was much other to settle editor at it would be answered next year we jumped them. At first until nature for all the Chop Shop well that's already prefer that the pool only. All very happy that I am afraid the corporate ethics and each and they are that we. Or whether they cooperate with us but air won't do it. The year after that we ended up hitting the or which say it's public or. And got a note perfect it was the right side anymore at all in the war in the focal fully tell us all we took our got off well. We have picked the chilling man outside when him upload them straight talk and then and then we turned embattled started doing auctions. And in like the rock and locally markets Asia Karl that would typically blame for the mechanical but stopped it or not. Emerging format popular up to buffalo in multiple call. Well you you guys have an affiliation has some are still with the Carolina rebellion no of people because you always get autographed guitars from therein that always brings some big names in men I assume brings you some pretty good box. Yes yeah it does it does lead up. A story. There is a kind of up and guitar made up by I don't actually put them calling him incur other we say it. Far from an infant taken cheated. They're on a rebellion and and shown off in the immediate area and let the fans from circuit and their lead again you know Lotta of interviews so forth.

Any four days before our auction so that you're back to Turkey for world. Now you're saying I'll I don't wanna save perfect but at the. The roar I've now run out. It does itself. I don't like down the same lines this year you had a Tom Petty autographed guitar Tom Petty and our breakers in and and they're all on their Mike Campbell and Ron Blair and RA and Scott Thurston and Steve Roni enough. They're much tension there they're all signed their along with Tom Petty. And I do listen timing is everything if you're gonna have I don't think or whatever be a bad time to have a Tom Petty guitar bit obviously a lot of us are missed and Tom Petty insult. You're timing on this was so what was it was excellent. Yeah weapon and we had actually knowing that the demographic that we were probably going this year. With the type of band currently healthy adult band that we had fresh air. Sample up on the we would be really you know honestly anything from. Americana rock all the way to keep him happy. Rock creek and like nonsense that it helped people don't like Bob ball well you know really much a no brainer and we offer our bass guitar. Or equal I think it was July former preserved it then and then you know after I after September October 1 ever close each the. The company. Call our set okay now without warrants that we still want more will follow court squeak into a bank event. You bought it from lay from go on I'll call it an auction house or lack of a better name. That's what didn't happen and then do that they could memorabilia company and well we're fortunate because both both of us are. All in and around the job I have an old man I'd vote for. The U outdoor amphitheater type is almost. On the spot here or. So we get our hands on or lot of sound all that great or. Armed so then I don't like Tom Petty. Song from a boat or the craft from or article out all the change something like that does incompetent at auction in health and now. It is a great conversation piece of bone and now people like you're you're looking forward to a look inept that so so that's been pretty cool to. Supplement but up that we were warned that we that we all accept it. Well and this was beautiful I mean it really is say you can see pictures of it would show up in Talladega you have till yesterday that's all I have seen was pictures are all hell yeah when you actually hold it in your hand when you actually see it and see the color of it and and I mean it's.

Student election I'm hearing that badly against someone else you don't go well yeah but but the but the.

Our next Thursday from a 3 to 6 o'clock here on WBT. Listen first of all thank your husband for being a long time listener. You never went away when we talk about kids first you never know.

So hey Karen thank you appreciate it. You're welcome thank you are all right off she goes and off we go over to the a beautiful traffic sinner responded with a missile mistletoe hanging in over the business and it's very very nice touch front you buy a hunter's bill Ford I 77 exit 23. And here's our little oil boomer Montana I don't know why we have the mistletoe though I have no idea what that's here. I don't either because you're in fear and Freddie aren't even here this guy please. In my dorm are not gonna get a and then from those that you're traveling through John Freddie is a female has decided then nine and neither one of a marvelous nevermind what tells the traffic. All right take them now. Talk to a higher standard and a couple of minutes from the Charlotte business journal. The new addition is out today media. Looks back on night ESPN ACC championship game and although the game turned out to be a blowout it to turned out to be a really good day for Charlotte in regards of exposure. Game day coming to town Isiah is a good thing. Nick Saban walking into Rome where bearden Parker one point is kind of things you don't aggressor XP expect on rare Saturday Dan Mullen from a Florida. Walking into Romero burden part because something you don't necessarily expect on air Saturday they had to Christmas village going on which is still going understand it's closed for the rest today because the weather. But there should be back open again tomorrow at 11 o'clock. But they had Christmas village had no idea that they would be competing when they first set that thing up for the Christmas season because game day wasn't a scheduled to come in by that time. So while all the sudden you had 15100 people including my son holding up banners net made it on TV by the way. Some some about. Herb street doesn't like peaches or something I have no idea where it was. So while. Anyway we'll we'll talk to about that but Charlotte shines in the ESPN. ACC championship. And some of the early numbers that show some of the gains for the ACC in Charlotte. They weren't here the year before I don't recall because of the HP to. Arab governments that are on Monday when we. A swore in our first amid African American female mayor although. We know via Lyles I'm not a Democrat. Obviously. But after nearly thirty years in city government in this stints as a budget director and assistant city manager. She certainly knows the subject matter in the territory and none of the players in the people of the community so well. We'll talk tour a little bit about that and what they're calling the new millennial council they were sworn in on Monday as well so Eric's bad birth Charlotte business journals just next. NN WVD. Why oh why are. Well holy city my fireplace from time was he. He did so little brother or Nintendo makes him real big didn't. Enjoying the sights and sounds of this season's. Over half a credit that three are right just so laid back. Yeah. I think it is very well you're not actually lead to begin to recover or you bought. About. Few. Picked up or my children for basketball Burke itself. It's probably watching me sleep come down. It is sleep too it's the way it's there's really nothing beautiful about it have been has the prospect of future beautiful. Yeah that's right that's right it cup half full right. Yeah on price be. Told slushy and almost frozen by the time we get to the into the night solo but that's a supply in fact tomorrow night they're calling for Lowe's anywhere twenty to 27 degrees on the like death so. So while there are quick yeah yeah I think this is a pretty good do we can do good to figure out of the fireplace and still works or not. Are you are well you survived the college game day weekend. Yes send let me be blunt it is going to pan am thankful that we had last weekend's weather last week you had Ford had it so we were outside a lot. I think they had a pretty good we hit until the games started the game was a clunker but there's not much you can do about that but otherwise because then they came out pretty well is so gross so who overall pick or. It should be pretty happy did you go to the game idea. Do was it pride to predominately. Clones and crowd. Yet it would however there are heavily Clinton crowd they're good or by any people then I would have expected. I'm yet seen in this is just that gas at least in the 7030 dropped more points and probably more than. I was figured probably about two thirds you vitro seal on TV and I couldn't really tell. The end game day was inching my kid was one of those down there are in fact he works or graphic arts companies so Roy you made up but. I big ol' sly and that says herb street doesn't like peaches are so tis the seasons on the life Bettany guy he got on TV. Fought so why he was he was happy about that but it's you know it's got it seemed all the sudden CN Nick Saban walks through a Romero bearden park on a Saturday you don't. Normally see that during football season. While I'm hearing that they ran as a fertile over the course but still it's so I think that's why he's there most. They're Criss cross village have you talked to anybody at the Christmas village Tuesday they must I mean you did they thought they had that park for the season pretty much to themselves and all the sudden end up. 4 o'clock in the morning no weird people stereo where young people start showing up with us science. Death while former curator here refer to collect or not. Literal walk. Oh up from eighty per person or you would come armored Pique our defense let the decade date set. Everyone seems to get along pretty well it. I don't think this really has much to do with. Game day gain in Charlotte but it's still a nice full notes. That ended up being the most watched. Burden gain data is being looked under one point five billion people probably reflection that it feet championships Saturday but if you're with the Charlotte chamber of commerce. You probably you'd have to bogey run. Well and and and then your article does not only deals with the economic benefits obviously and Mayo vision no event visible Minnesota bush Charlotte again none none nationalist agent national TV. But also talks about. Charlotte becoming a bigger player on the college football circa obviously. Big game day being here and not at the Big Ten which bell Ohio State Wisconsin was a big game not being at the SEC. But picking on this particular game two to to bring the team do. Does speak well for the ACC championship and you you talk about good thing it wasn't this weekend and it was last weekend. Good thing it was this year not last year. Yeah that's true too. Four people who may have forgotten last year the ATP championship or was one of those reserve moved because of how they'll tell you and it will poor little girl with only about coupons noticed and it was he. Lowest attended the ACC championship and the games started in 2005 about if you want felt so bad so. Yes that was the very group having. That you get the best matchup in the history be ATP championship. Goodyear they cut back to Charlotte of course you're the other thing that was really important last week weren't our agriculture job offer. Telling their B and other reporters that it it's just this question of where the not if they extend their. Partnership that Bank of America Stadium past the current expiration date or in Korea but you know that that the big thing for the tour executives for sure sports foundation keeping the ATP here now especially in BAT's see all of sudden it's a pretty good football. Well you write a touch your angle on this was for uninteresting up until now it's been about Alabama and this up and comer Clemson. But now you've got a real possibility and never you know don't don't don't count your chickens before but you've got a real possibility that Clemson could be 82 time national champion. Our mind and I and all the sudden and aids it's Alabama and Clemson and it's not up and comer it's Alabama and Clemson. Yeah NN that they mean that solves that so many problems. You know we talk about this ticket sales when you talk about getting ESPN game day week architect getting the spotlight here. You know the past there has certainly been times when. You had a match up with lower tier schools aren't either way that they keep PG AB chip it almost felt like it would have been cool even though we're dominate BC look at such talks. The college football world it was or different last week he had a net but things that they're hoping to keep going obviously. Actual numbers hotel occupancy numbers. Yeah other than they were very happy via opt for. He had whether the percentage are really infused with about eighty first thing as obviously that's the way up from when he picked seeing it every game but it's even. A few percentage points for 25 in the last summer it was in Charlotte and then also what to tell us that they get really jumped out at John is that the ready for those fruit. Up 27%. For around 2015 there were not prepared against the every year according sixty worker verbeek in the last time it would ensure that the ATP championship. That's a pretty healthy number so and I would wrote this little skeptical I think a lot of these economic effect numbers are uploaded. An exaggerated side. It's hard to deny it that a weekend with an eighty PG AB chip part of the world but Al doesn't make it different for hotels the restaurants. Well I'm an increase in rates to that degree. Even if you just sold as many rouge did it last year that's a bad Rex that's a net game. Com talk about a couple of side issues that would regard the ACC one would be the Labor Day games that we're trying to kick off the season with two which have been. Somewhat lackluster and any other steel belts pull a mother not built growth continues to be via the sponsor of all of that I don't know but. Honestly one who what are you hearing enough from mother principles and be about to of the prospects of Wake Forest in Texas a and M. Aura that the cardinals are trying to put the best bet on us they camp it was fake that you get it. Really a typical games just fell look if it ever since the college football playoff. Became a reality. Almost every ball game has struggled anyway the belt poll is bill. A lower the second tier bowl it did you brought up other Wake Forest which just had they welcomed they get whipped and Ukrainian taxes they have much doubt about that a little. Well John I really don't think they're gonna do much better than forty felt like I think forty doubt people would would probably be a pretty good day for them. Oh. He's the belt full it is still continuing to struggle in the Balkans in general are because. All the emphasis now is on those few oil gained. And in this championship a week later and I asked sports marketing nap professor at Washington university in Saint Louis. He was really saying is that fact in order should be ATP championship Labor Day kickoff game and Belk bowl. How do your third birdie LA as a community in terms its gain they're able to generate. Tourism money and interest in which you in the spotlight. Because of the way college football as gondola. Fierce and you just kind of acceptable game is it is what it is type. Proposition. Yeah I think so it luckily I think you know obviously for the hotels the restaurants there they're happy to hit that business and it's time we hear when there's not a lot of as travelers coming through cannot remember the teams coming usually stay a week's show. It's certainly has some benefits but. I don't know how they're going to even hit their goal of fifty to open things which is where we'll where sports foundation. Ain't for a minute Damon hit that in the past five years so I just felt so. How viable. This field older one will say is that when I spoke with felt that spokesman there says that they are. At least in pursuit in considering the possibility of continuing past the end date at 2019 Connecticut pot or keep it on. It innkeeper don't. Roma beat the right phrase because television buddy is what's keeping a lot of games like if felt all afloat remember even though it's not a high stakes game whatever day or night it is during the holidays typically bowl game ex warriors C is going to get one of your higher rating that it forget it for a group of football. How real quick the old ex Labor Day game is West Virginia Tennessee Tennessee you'll be coming in with a new coach West Virginia. Issa is always a decent team but. Is at a better prospect than none North Carolina State South Carolina. You know it meg video and I certainly want to present to you before I saw the you're supporting crowd it Labor Day you know yet again people are are yet a third of the seats empty out West Virginia is one of those schools their fans are very has ever travelers following their people around so. That should help in this city I'm not sure what to make. That's score right now obviously they have bungled their coaching search. Multiple times they are very athletic director and even though that. Under belt and they have dubbed rocky top I don't know how excited they're going to be going into next season so I think differently get a coach obviously recent days and maybe they will travel. It's really hard Elwood at leopard they gave me feel like or don't think John. There should have been more successful than it has been for the first game maybe this will be the one that gets them going in the right direction toward. You know Cabrera you're you're regret you earlier this week or the city. Now mostly all I ever got to a new mayor are not new City Council doctor expand her from the Charlotte visitors journal about that next. Newest addition of the Charlotte business journalist out every Friday and we tried to talking Eric's memory every Friday it took 4 o'clock go when no possible got a Mon now we are just talking about their Charlotte game day in the ACC championship. ESPN and everybody coming to town last weekend. Com Monday we got ourselves they had a new mayor and we got ourselves say pretty young City Council I assume you were there as well. I was. And you are probably there at the government that are so a lot of people excited. Family members said that supporters. But particularly you talk about those that if you first time elected council members all under the age of forty. Do you think really stood out the first he has you. Mayor file while I kept it short and sweet about a seven speech emphasizing the actions over planning terrorist state so that's one thing to watch and the second thing is. Well I think it you have may have discussed already is how ambitious the new council member members aren't or the veterans as Drake. Cautioned them if you you know I'd take a look around the plate in and get their feet set before they immediately got into trying few. Pat you meet saying change you really think you can bet that'll be one of the thanks for watching here is that tension between the eager newcomer Ben. You're out the usual grinding here at government that you probably want a picture of both but that's a lot of pressure and a lot of expectations on eight you council members. They seem to realize that a release they have up until this point they had talked about a lot of Reading to do auto homered to do a lot of things to learn they seem to understand to some extent that there was a learning curve here and unpaid debt. I have to I'm kind of you know get into the flow of things. Not necessarily jump on the bike before they learned how to ride it. Do you did you see that changing. No I think you're right John I think will be one of the things that they're. Going to have to deal with particular summer like for are the ones that you've got beat. Disallow this eight vote that you get the perception the other night at the turn and is that Beatty managing the expectations so supporters Q. You know watch your campaign and it happens a lot. You hear a lot of lofty rhetoric eager a lot of ambition. But it's always part you. Move it fast larger office felt if they can break air supporter along with them or recognize that that limitation all all we're trying cute. You know changed things improved things then I think it will go over well with. From what I've read he had the quote of the night because he's well known for standing up and part of the police with his fist up in the air during the upper rising I don't know so it's gone right. Comment but he said did Dick council the other night if we can come together as a fist. We can break through these walls of an equity I thought that was a pretty good quote for a guy that. Where he is getting downgraded by people online they're basically tell any mug to you know they're gonna take your first out of the air and put your pants up. Yeah I think you're right I think there's he has so far. Show it's already. Incredible knack for balance Spain did see shake up the system whip. Working within the fifth and recognizing. That he has a lot of work that very fine line to walk. So far I think he's that struck the right tone and so we'll see really in January when they get going on the budget that he partied with those kind of things. If he and the rest of his things Alex I think you'd figure that. Next up will be vile Lyles and now committee assignments. That'll be interesting to watch I've got about thirty seconds to say dregs get Dei is a committee back. I think Hedrick will be back about economic development committee and he he would always be in very astute judge give these various proposals because that you Franco he was adult sex Wall Street. It workers so he vetoed the idea that the NFL I think I'll I'll or. Got that now she just. All right I don't think I'm the only one that I I kind of bristle when you're referred to as the first African American female mayor only because I think she offers a lot more than just that. Yeah and brag on not a lot of people tell me that she might be about qualified and experienced player we've ever had so I think you're right if you view it that way yet does that say it ain't nice. Aspect of this but that much more important part is that she knows little government it's not else. You know that's not the story itself hey I have a great weekend stay warm and all the talk to next Friday. Felt great stereo Zurich status member senior staff writer Charlotte business journal. Several of the eight. 1988. Monday Night Football. Howard Cosell. 342. Days into the year 47 change 23. Days to go. And this was the date that we were all watch and Monday Night Football the evening of 1980 John Lennon murdered by Mark David Chapman that's how most of us heard about it in New York City. I don't go wrong if you vote have been by the Dakota building but I've done tested several times back got a really interesting guard probably three years after the shooting happened. And I was in a new York and I went to if you go to component to see where it happened something about going into the sea the primary motive. And the stand there on the sidewalk and and guard came out of the Shaq and that I do us a mom fun non. You said you want the story there thank the broad and asked a million times.

Until dale if you get your computer to work. All the fourteen year old next door. Secret supplier of that 450 million dollar to Bengie caning has been unmasked his Saudi Arabian friends. Which is interesting that he spent 450 million dollars on a picture of Jesus because Muslims respect Jesus is a great profit but under Muslim law it's blasphemous to create an image of him. I think it's my understanding sodas you buy that to destroy it I don't know what this. Amanda and not England made up they Tony made up a phony restaurant and then he used fake reviews. And he somehow or another made at the number one restaurant in England posted by trip advisor. The place even received hundreds of requests for reservations.

To our north to northwestern mere you'll see higher accumulations but I keep on renewed the meteorologists are us saying. And we may get a little bit more snow than what we thought we're gonna get so. When you get into Saturday night into Sunday it's gonna get down in the twenties so it's going to be your really really cold I think our overnight low right now estrogen to be about 3433. Degree is. But to. So this particular bull system that sentiment or we'll just have to see what happens but the high country and Hickory in places like that can get does some pretty good accumulation and we've been calling for less than an inch and a point six point seven learned something like babble we may see more than that want to keep her eye on the weather forecast. Yep and tis the season to be dumped. Monday. December the eleventh is the date that couples are most likely to break up. Digital statisticians. Looked at data from our FaceBook analyzing thousands of messages looking for a signs of breakup and from their investigation they do doctored or deduced. Bad down. The complete break up periods around the holidays fault two weeks before Christmas Day that would be Monday. The reasons for the break out very for some the idea of spending the festive period with someone that they're having doubts about brings a wave of bread. For a new couples many decide that they don't wanna bring their new data home to meet their parents and they don't want to our meet yours but the thing. And for the thrifty some realize that they're new partner are really just. Does not spend money on. So I anyway. Have a nice weekend and and good luck everybody on now Monday.

Tomorrow with the snow will taper off but we just don't know what you accumulation would be like a state north to northwest of us it's gonna get to. It's gonna get hit harder than we are. But don't we may get hard hit harder than what we were originally thinking.
