Former WRAL-FM employee pleads to embezzlement

Posted January 15, 2010

— A former accounting manager at WRAL-FM pleaded guilty Friday to four counts of embezzlement from the station.

Bobbie Huffman Gray worked for the Raleigh radio station for 29 years before leaving the station in August 2007. The station is owned by Capitol Broadcasting Co., which also is the parent company of WRAL-TV and WRAL.com.

Gray is accused of forging the signatures of several WRAL-FM managers on hundreds of checks and depositing the money into her own accounts.

Gray will spend 12 to 16 months in prison and be forced to re-pay CBC more than $166,000 in restitution.

    That name sounds familiar...wasn't she a cohost on the morning radio show? I think she was cohost 126, before Donna but after Sheri #1.

    As a practicing accountant I find it hard to believe that CBC's accounting dept is so poorly run that one person would be able to pull off such a large embezzlement. Internal controls in CBC's accounting dept must be very poor and need to be revamped immediately to fix this problem from being possible.

    WOW! That is some nerve, and to think she was stupid enough to think she was going to get away with it...

    WRAL should absolutely post a pic. Why do they get to decide who is publicly humiliated!

    Glad to see Ms. Gray was caught and held accountable for her actions. Needs to happen more often.

    And to think that money could have been spent on a proof reader and a headline writer familiar with standard English. What a shame!

    Shame on WRAL for not posting a pic. I'm sure somebody wanted to be nice to the crook and not show his pic. WRAL has to have a pic.
