On the local news roundup, the NCAA brings championship games back to the state but not to Charlotte.  The ACC is more generous.  And another lawsuit connected to Wells Fargo’s sales practices.  Mike Collins and the roundup reporters cover those stories and more.

On this edition of the local news roundup, the NCAA has announced that it will bring championship games back to North Carolina after the repeal of the controversial HB2 law- four North Carolina cities were announced as host cities for championships through 2022—none of them were Charlotte. We’ll talk about where those events will be held and why the Queen City was passed over.

The ACC announced, however, that Charlotte will be the site of its football championship this year, along with other championship events throughout the state.

Charlotte-based Bank of America’s first quarter earnings are in, most categories pointing higher than predicted. We take a look at the results.  

Meanwhile, Wells Fargo is the subject of another lawsuit related to improper sales practices.

A look at those stories and much more with host Mike Collins and the roundup reporters.
