‘Modern Family’ returns tonight! Hear from star Sofia Vergara on WWAY NewsChannel 3 at 5 & 6

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The hit ABC show and Emmy winner for Best Comedy “Modern Family” returns.

Recently we talked with star Sofia Vergara about the new season and her career.

She’s been nominated for an Emmy three times. But believe it or not, the star says she was nervous about playing the role of a young, beautiful Latin woman.

“At the beginning I was a little nervous, actually,” Vergara told “Good Morning Carolina” anchor Ashley Jacobs. “Because of my character, Gloria, I felt that maybe people were going to hate her because she was kind of like a gold digger, the very hot Latin marrying a lot older guy, and she had a kid.”

You’ll see her role change this season. Gloria is expecting a baby, which will bring more tears and laughs to the show.

Hear more from Vergara tonight on WWAY NewsChannel 3 at 5 and 6 p.m.

“Modern family” starts at 9 p.m. right here on WWAY and ABC.

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — Mitt Romney is getting help with his presidential bid in North Carolina from two close allies – his oldest son and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Rubin and Tagg Romney were scheduled to hold public events Wednesday in western North Carolina.

Romney campaign plans had Rubio attending a “Victory Rally” at a structural steel plant in Charlotte to tout Romney’s trade policies should he be elected president. Rubio introduced Romney on the final night of the Republican National Convention.

Tagg Romney was going to Asheville to attend a lunch for campaign volunteers. He also was expected to hold public events Thursday in the mountains and in the Triad.

Rubio also was slated Wednesday to attend a lunch fundraiser for Republican 9th Congressional District candidate Robert Pittenger.

Flags to fly at half-staff for State Capitol chief

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina flags will fly at half-staff at the capitol to honor State Capitol Police Chief W. Scott Hunter, who died last week at the age of 49.

Gov. Beverly Perdue has ordered that the flags be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset Wednesday to honor Hunter, who died Friday after a long illness. Others wishing to lower the state flag as a sign of respect may do so.

Hunter became State Capitol police chief in 2003 and stayed on the job until recently.

The funeral will be held at noon Wednesday at Upper Room Church of God in Christ in Raleigh. Hunter will be buried at Lincoln Cemetery in Columbia, S.C.

Hunter grew up in Laurens, S.C. He’s survived by his wife and three children.
