From the Charlotte Observer:
Heather Childers, who spent eight years as weekday anchor at News 14 Carolina, is moving to Fox News Channel as a New York reporter and fill-in anchor.
Childers, who grew up in Charlotte and is a 1987 graduate of Myers Park High School, says landing at the cable network is a dream come true. …
In 1999, Childers became an anchor at WLOS (Channel 13) in Asheville and in 2002 returned to Charlotte for the launch of Time Warner Cable’s 24-hour news channel News 14 Carolina.
Childers says much of her inner resolve comes from a difficult chapter in her life. At 16, she crashed her 1964 Corvair into a tree on Queens Road West. Years of reconstructive facial and oral surgery followed. It was a long ordeal.
“I learned you have to keep trying, keep trying. I think that’s what came from it all.”
