- A wise person once said, “Mommy, all the good stuff is in Charlotte.” That wise person was my 5-year old son, and he was right on.
Greetings people of the Queen City! I'm Page Crawford and if you're an insomniac, the parent of a newborn or just a bleary-eyed lover of local morning television, I'm your new best friend. I'm excited to hang with you weekday mornings from 4:30 – 9:00 AM on our Fox 46 morning show, “Good Day Charlotte!”
I grew up right outside of Washington, D.C., but have lived in North Carolina for almost 20 years. My stint in the Tar Heel state began… well… as a Tar Heel, at UNC-Chapel Hill. I “played” softball my freshman year (hence the glory days photo you see here), but quickly decided to leave the softball to ladies with skills far superior to my own and concentrated on something I was better at: talking into a camera. I graduated with a journalism degree and then spent two years in the Peace Corps in Honduras digging latrines. My life took an only slightly more glamorous turn when, upon completion of my Peace Corps service, I moved to New York City to wear navy blue polyester and make barely enough money to live on Ramen noodles as an NBC Page (yes, I was “Page-the-Page”). During that time I also met the man of my dreams over a “Dumb and Dumber” movie line quote-off. It was love at first sss...slippy...slappy...swanson...SIGHT. Love at first sight. Sorry, I knew it started with an 'S.'
Fast forward to today… and now I'm in love with three men and one woman. But I'm married to one of them and gave birth to the other three, so that'll teach you to jump to conclusions. Part-time hosting and reporting jobs in New York led to a full-time gig at WNCN in Raleigh and now brings me here to FOX 46 Charlotte! My husband, our three knuckleheads and I now live on the same street as seven other members of my family, and if that doesn't make you think I'm insane then maybe this will: I love waking up at 2 AM and bringing you your morning news every day. Pinky swear.
My favorite thing in the world is hearing and telling stories, and I love doing both every day on "Good Day Charlotte." Turn us on and let us keep you company while you get ready for your day… I’ll see you there!
Bonus points to anyone who knows which CHARLOTTE sports team my shirt is a shout-out to!
