WRAL reporters Adam Owens and Mike Charbonneau have a lot in common.

After college, they worked at WNCT-TV in Greenville and were roommates during that time. Now they work at WRAL and live just a few doors down from each other on the same street. These best friends are also celebrating their new roles as “Daddy.”
