    "My goal and ambition for athletes, is to be a leader and a role model ... You're not there just to coach basketball, you're there to impact the city."

    Born into a family of sports, Nolan has used his gift of basketball to make not only an impact on the court, but in the lives of everyone he comes across. From a National Championship at Duke in 2010, to now on the basketball staff, Nolan and his wife Cheyna aim to create lasting relationships to make the world around them a better place.

    "What you see is what you get. I feel doing anything more is just too much work."

    Since he was 3, Brian had dreams of imitating the game show and television talent that he watched any chance he got.

    Sharing our stories in high school broadcasting class, we switched to sharing stories of a favorite friend of ours who worked in the industry for over 30 years and the legacy he left. Brian discusses the importance and rarity of being able to stay local throughout his career in local news and how his career has shifted to combat different roles he's received over the years at WRAL-TV.

    Naturally, the conversation takes a turn as we discuss the great game shows of the 70's and 80's as well as the hosts who made it happen.

    Brian is someone you could talk to for hours and hours, but we condensed this down to just under an hour for you!

    "Whatever you put into is what you're gonna get out of it... Just because you got a kidney transplant doesn't mean you need to stop living your life. Just keep on trucking."

    This goes far beyond hockey. Long before the night that is cemented in sports history, Dave has impacted lives. From growing up in a small town, to being in the Hockey Hall of Fame, Dave shares with us what got him to this point today. Along with the art of hockey "chirping" amongst other things in this episode, Dave brings such a positive insight on everything he comes into contact with.

    Pitter patter, here's the episode.

    “I’m sitting there, shy and fidgety like I normally am, then she said ‘You’d get up there, walk up to the podium, you’d fix your suit jacket, and as soon as you did that it was like there was a different person up there.’”

    Programming by day, announcing for tens of thousands by night, Wade has developed an incredible balance that satisfies all aspects of his life. From performing improv, to being the PA Announcer for the Carolina Hurricanes, Wade enjoys the mic and is clearly meant for it.
