Eastern North Carolina has been experiencing unusual weather this winter – Christmas Day marked record breaking warm temperatures.  A couple of weeks later, there were reports of snow flurries and temperatures dipping into the middle 20's.  The unsteady conditions felt throughout the nation has been attributed to El Nino.  Chris Thomas has more on how it’s affected, and may affect, the region.

Meteorologists love a challenge – at least, Lara Pagano does.

Thomas Sayer

Once known for its tobacco history, Kinston is trying to transition into a destination for art and culture.  Today, we hear learn about a new seven-piece installation by famous sculptor Thomas Sayre.

Kinston has undergone a bit of a renaissance in recent years. The area is now home to a thriving art community, a craft brewery, award-winning restaurants, and a rich history. Much of that history goes back to the early 1900’s when tobacco farming here was a way of life. Kinston Community Art Council Executive Director Sandy Landis.
