During the story, the reporter for the FOX owned station in Charlotte, NC, faux farted into a wine glass then smelled it.
“I think this might be…” Dick wrote on his facebook page. “The best thing I’ve ever done.”
While TVSpy likes a fart joke as much as the next blogger, We want to know what you think. Watch the story, then post your response on our facebook page.
The Charlotte FOX owned station aired a newsroom discussion on whether it was OK for women to go without make up. The talk was inspired by Colbie Caillat‘s song “Try” featuring the lyrics, “Take your makeup off/ Let your hair down/ Take a breath/ Look into the mirror at yourself/ Don’t you like you?/ Cause I like you,”
In the mornings I do; especially when I’m taking my daughter to daycare, my face is bare. But one day I had on a Fox46 shirt and one of my daughter’s teachers asked about what I do for a living. Eventually she said, “Oh! You’re the lady I saw on the news the other night!?!” Instantly, I felt like makeup was a necessity.
This video challenged me to consciously “try” to be me, naturally. Doing it on air, even for part of the show….let’s just say….I’ve learned self-acceptance is sometimes a choice.

“It’s a wonderful place. I’m going to miss you all,” Crawford said. “And I really want to say thank you too to all of our viewers, all of you who watch, because it really is a privilege to come into your homes every day.” Watch:
WBTV (Channel 3), which reincarnated its traveling feature program four years ago and made it into a monthly prime-time series hosted by morning anchors John Carter and Christine Nelson and produced by Kevin Marlow, is canceling it.
It was doing well, says news director Dennis Milligan, but the station has decided to use the people who worked on the show on other things. No jobs are being cut, he says.
“We can use that manpower for better and stronger news in other time periods,” he says. Carter and Nelson have already expanded their morning duties by doing a two-hour newscast from 7 to 9 a.m. on WBTV’s subchannel 3.2, which carries the Bounce channel.

Hickory-based reporter Dave Faherty was following the search in a rugged area of the foothills when authorities asked for assistance from Chopper 9 overhead. “They asked us for help because they couldn’t locate the suspect,” says news director Julie Szulczewski. “We wanted to help them because it was a public safety threat.”
Andy Holt, who has been flying Chopper 9 for nearly two decades, was focusing on officers in the woods when he got the call. He landed nearby and two Burke deputies climbed aboard his six-seat helicopter. An officer on the ground reached the slain Forest Service officer and signaled his position to the helicopter with a strobe flashlight, allowing deputies to direct others to the scene. After about 30 minutes, the State Highway Patrol helicopter arrived to continue the search for the suspect, who was ultimately killed.
“Over the years, we have helped out law enforcement as needed,” says Holt, who flew H-53 Sea Dragons while he was in the Navy.
The reporter for the Greenville, SC, FOX affiliate had “Boogie Woogie Man” Jimmy Valiant on to talk about the shindig. But after telling everyone about the show, Valiant got a little intimate with Gagnon.
“Hey! Let’s share a bikini tonight,” said Valiant. “You wear the top piece and I’ll wear the bottom piece. How about that?”
“Just another Friday night for me.” replied Gagnon.
Valiant then burst into song and topped it all off with a full on wrestler to reporter mouth kiss. Happy Tuesday, everybody.
A station spokesperson wouldn’t comment on why he left, but said Stewart’s last day was Wednesday.
