Thank you for your tremendous response to the first edition of Three Things You Didn’t Know last week. I profiled a trio of my WRAL colleagues and disclosed three things about them that you probably didn’t know.

This week the spotlight falls on three more of my newsroom partners. We’ll begin with Kelcey Carlson who co-anchors WRAL’s Morning News and Fox 50 News in the mornings. We will also reveal three intriguing qualities about WRAL morning meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. Veteran anchor Pam Saulsby recently joined WRAL’s Noon News and it is also a pleasure to unveil three things you didn’t know about Pam.

Who would you like me to profile next week? Just let me know.

P.S.  We already knew Pam was a great singer!

    I am ready to find out three things about Greg, David and Monica!!! lol I knew Kelsey had to be a runner - look at the commerical about the morning news! Pam looks like an island girl and I could see her having the neatest desk - she likes her papers in front of her to be neat! And I've always know Elizabeth was very smart! You dont see many women meteorologists!!! :) This is fun!!!

    But is Elizabeth pregnant again? It's almost impossible to tell on TV. I loved the story about her wedding posted back in February.

    No worries! Pam will continue to do the 5 & 6PM news.

    I'd like to read about Gerald, Kim and Ken.

    I hope this doesn't mean Pam is leaving the evening news for the noon news; these WRAL shakeups are unsettling!
