Tom Bullock decided to trade the khaki clad masses and traffic of Washington DC for Charlotte in 2014. Before joining WFAE, Tom spent 15 years working for NPR.  Over that time he served as everything from an intern to senior producer of NPR’s Election Unit.  Tom also spent five years as the senior producer of NPR’s Foreign Desk where he produced and reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Haiti, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon among others.  Tom is looking forward to finally convincing his young daughter, Charlotte, that her new hometown was not, in fact, named after her.

This week's edition of WFAE Talks has a newby. He's Money & Influence reporter Tom Bullock. Tom sat in for Ben Bradford, who was getting some sleep after a long and busy day of covering the Duke Energy coal ash spill on the Dan River. Tom, Lisa and Greg discuss the spill, the problems and  uncertainty over implementation of North Carolina's third-grade reading law, and high stakes in this year's state Supreme Court election.


A federal judge has ruled the North Carolina Department of Transportation illegally seized and destroyed private property in Concord. The judge ordered the agency to pay more than $20,000 in fines.

Charlotte already hosts a number of major sporting events each year.  There are the NASCAR races – of course, and Panthers and Bobcat games.  But later this summer the city may briefly be home to two of the best professional soccer teams in the world.
