WATCH: Would Miley Cyrus Twerk to This? WCNC Weatherman Gets ReMixed

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. You can watch the video of the whole process after the jump. Read more

No One Does Halloween Like WCNC’s Larry Sprinkle

There may be no other TV personality in the country who takes Halloween as seriously as WCNC morning weathercaster Larry Sprinkle.

Sprinkle, who has been with the Charlotte NBC-affiliate since 1985, doesn’t just dress up for Halloween, he dresses up several times during the course of a Halloween morning newscast.

This morning, Sprinkle wore ten (ten!) different costumes during WCNC’s two-and-a-half-hour-long morning show. Also, all of Sprinkle’s costumes are original characters, created by, as he puts it, “a very strange mind.” Video inside… Read more
