Charlie Gaddy (AKA The Silver Fox) was born in Biscoe, North Carolina, educated at Guildford College, served in the US Army, studied law and then was bitten by the “broadcast bug.” As the old phrase goes, “the rest is history.”
Charlie has lived a robust life, and still does to this day. For those who did not have the pleasure of working with Charlie during his time as WRAL News anchor, please take time to watch John Harris’ wide-ranging interview with Charlie on the CBC History website.
