“Uptown’s skyline at dusk will be the backdrop for the “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric” on Friday, as the newscast originates from Charlotte in its first stop on a three-city tour of election-year battleground states.
In addition to the presidential race, Couric will focus on the tight U.S. Senate contest between Elizabeth Dole and Kay Hagan and will feature interviews with both.
A set for the program will be erected on the roof of the four-story Charlotte School of Law on Suttle Avenue, which is off Wilkinson Boulevard on the edge of uptown.”

“As the financial world remakes itself almost daily, Charlotte is getting another dose of national media attention – this time from CBS’ ’60 Minutes.’
Correspondent Lesley Stahl was in town this week to do a piece on Charlotte’s role in the banking roller coaster, which has included Bank of America’s planned purchase of Merrill Lynch & Co. and Wachovia’s ultimate sale to Wells Fargo & Co. On Wednesday, Stahl interviewed Bank of America CEO Ken Lewis and his predecessor Hugh McColl Jr., a source told the Insider.
A ’60 Minutes’ producer confirmed the piece is set to run Sunday.”
