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.
