The Carolina Panthers announced today, General Manager Dave Gettleman has been fired. He had been with the team since 2013.

Swiss bank Credit Suisse will add 1,200 jobs at its technology hub in the Research Triangle, representing North Carolina's largest corporate expansion since MetLife Inc. said in 2013 that it could move 2,600 jobs from other states.

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer was arrested early Friday morning for communicating a threat toward other officers while acting drunk and disorderly.

As the Carolina Panthers’ sunken season marched to its inevitable ending Sunday at Tampa Bay, take small solace that coach Ron Rivera chose not to extend it a minute longer.

Down by one with 17 seconds left after (finally) a Cam Newton touchdown pass, Rivera never hesitated in going for 2.

Anyone who watched and followed this team with any regularity knew how it was going to end – if not the specifics, then the sudden, sad result.

The epitaph on the 2016 Carolina Panthers should read: Came close, but not good enough to finish the deal.

As dry conditions move east from North Carolina's mountains, five counties are now in an 'exceptional' drought - the highest level as determined by the U.S. Drought Monitor.

State officials say exceptional drought has now spread to Graham, Macon, and Swain counties, joining them with Cherokee and Clay counties. More than 40 percent of North Carolina is now in some stage of drought, up from 30 percent last week.

An army of disappointed fans streamed out of bars and restaurants around the Charlotte area Sunday night after the Carolina Panthers fell to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.  Police on foot and on bicycles were stationed on street corners along Tryon Street and near the Epicenter. But aside from a few honking horns and a few excited Broncos’ fans, things remained mostly quiet uptown.

In Super Bowl 50, defense was superior to offense.

The Carolina Panthers lost 24-10 to the Broncos in Super Bowl 50, denying Carolina the first Super Bowl title in franchise history.

The Panthers had trailed by at least 10 points for three times in a magical 17-1 run to the Super Bowl, and rallied to win each time.

But this was the Super Bowl, and the Panthers trailed 10-0 in the first quarter and 16-7 in the fourth.
