CBC Tent Attracts Visitors At The N.C. State Fair
Capitiol Broadcasting Company employees have been busy at the State Fair this week. The CBC tent, in its usual location beside Dorton Arena, has been a popular spot as fair-goers stop by to get autographs from WRAL-TV, FOX 50 and MIX 101.5 personalities, to sign up for drawings and to purchase items from the WRAL store.
|WRAL-TV is giving away an HDTV set, FOX50 is giving away a GoKart and MIX 101.5 is holding a drawing for Midway airline tickets to anywhere Midway flies; one pair is given away each day. The CBC tent houses a NASCAR display; NASCAR driver Jay Folgelman’s #68 Busch series car has attracted a lot of onlookers. Also on display is an ongoing demonstration of AccessDTV. A way to watch HDTV via a personal computer, AccessDTV will launch in the Triangle after Christmas. WRAL-TV Reporter Mark Roberts is giving live afternoon traffic reports from his own corner of the tent, garnering quite a crowd to watch the trafficologist in action.|
