Highlights for Kelcey Carlson
Enjoy watching the victory parade after the NHL Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup championship in 2006. The Canes beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-1. It marked the first professional major league sports title for a team from North Carolina. The win came in the 7th game of the series and was played before the second-largest home crowd of “Caniacs” in franchise history. Cam Ward was honored with the Conn Smythe Trophy for most valuable player. Several players raised the Cup for the first time in long NHL careers; Rod Brind’Amour and Bret Hedican had both played over 15 years without winning the Cup, while Glen Wesley — the last remaining Hartford Whaler on the Hurricanes’ roster — had waited 18 seasons. Let’s Go Canes!
“Kelly’s Story: Weighing the Options” takes a unique look at the issue of self-image and healthy weight in teens and children.
The program begins with Kelly’s Story, a drama using local actors in which an overweight teenage girl struggles with body image and self-worth both at home and school. Scenarios from the drama then springboard a discussion for panelists and a studio audience moderated by WRAL News Anchor Pam Saulsby and anchor/reporter Kelcey Carlson. Executive Producer – Phyllis Parish Howard, Director – James Ford, Post Production – Steve Elizondo.
