Presenting Sponsor

FOX8 WGHP is the Piedmont Triad’s choice for local news, producing more local content (10.5 hours per day, Monday through Friday) than any other local news outlet.  FOX8 also operates the number one local news website in the state of North Carolina (www.myfox8.com), while also reaching nearly 600,000 fans on Facebook every day.

In addition to their news operation, FOX8 is also an incredible charitable partner for numerous community outreach programs.  Annual FOX8 events such as “Gifts for Kids,” “Give a Kid a Coat,” “The Triad Holiday Food Drive and Concerts,” and the “FOX8 Community Baby Shower” have an enormous impact on the community, supplying hundreds of thousands of toys, coats, meals and baby supplies for families in need.
