According to KVUE, WCNC’s sister station, Corrie Harding, WCNC’s news director, saw a video on YouTube of two people launching a beer can into space. He wanted to see if his station could do the same thing.
With the help of Hackerspace Charlotte, a collaborative space for people who like to tinker with technology, the station took two GoPro cameras, the lunchbox, a helium filled balloon, a 3D model of an astronaut with meteorologist Larry Sprinkle‘s face attached and let it go to see how high it would reach.

Murray has spent two years working at KOSA, the CBS affiliate in Midland-Odessa, Texas. She has also worked as a local radio correspondent.
“I lived in Austin for four years and most of my friends are there, so it was always my goal to get back there,” Murray told Church. “I’ve had a great experience here in Midland-Odessa and I’m sad to leave everybody here, but I could see myself building a life in Austin. I love the town.”
Cheskey will join ABC affiliate KOCO as the weekend anchor. He will anchor five shows a weekend — three on Saturday and two on Sunday — and report for the evening newscast during the week.

Culture Map reports Chesky will be replaced by Shannon Murray.
In the video (above) it appears the woman spots Culpepper finishing up a live shot on the Austin Fan Fest. She then drifts into position to Culpepper’s screen left where she gets a little too close to the Austin reporter. “Oh yeah,” said Culpepper with Aikido-like grace. “And of course, lots of people drinking down here.
