From Sheryl in Durham

My only personal-experience memory of Greg comes from what must have been his inaugural years at WRAL; I'm sure that Charlie Gaddy was still the anchor and Bob DeBardelaben (sp?) was still the head weather guy.

I'd just graduated from college so it must have been late 1984 or early 1985. I lived at what was then "The Shire" apartments on Gorman St., and my roomate and I were treating ourselves to the breakfast buffet at Shoney's on Avent Ferry, which was mere steps from WRAL's studios. And there was Greg. Skinny. A polyester polo shirt. Big glasses. Giant plate of food. Janet and I were gawking. We recognized him but he was the third-string guy so we didn't have stars in our eyes. 
Janet and I are still in touch, and we have changed at least as much as Greg has since that day. 
Bon appetit, Greg!
