Two Tar Heel Retirements

Woody Durham

Host Frank Stasio talks with Dave DeWitt, WUNC’s Raleigh Bureau Chief and education reporter, about these two men and the posts they are leaving.

This morning, longtime Raleigh mayor Charles Meeker announced that he will not be running for re-election. Meeker’s retirement could signal the start of a new political era for North Carolina’s rapidly-growing capital city. In other retirement news, Woody Durham, “The Voice of the Tar Heels,” stepped down as Carolina’s play-by-play announcer after 40 years of calling UNC’s football and basketball games.
