Page Fehling spent more than seven years at Fox 46 Charlotte; however, the anchor spoke with The Charlotte Observer to explain why she’s stepping away from the news desk after two decades in television newsrooms.

“As you can imagine, I would never have done that for this many years had I not loved what I was doing,” Fehling said. “I mean, 2 a.m. is like waking up yesterday for work, right? … There were so many days I would come home, and I was just always so tired and, but I would be like, ‘I can’t believe I get paid to do this!”

“This is just the most fun thing ever; it checks so many boxes in terms of fulfillment for yourself and feeling like you’re doing some good in your community.’ Then I would fall asleep and wake up and go, ‘But how long can I keep this schedule up?”

Fehling’s final day at the Fox 46 station remains up in the air. Although it was initially to be Oct. 1, however, with scheduling issues, she says, “it’ll be sometime that last week of September or possibly the week before.”

“I tossed around the idea of going back to what I thought I would always do — speaking and training and things like that — throughout the years,” Fehling said. “Every couple years, you have a contract up, and you kind of go, ‘Is this gonna work? Is it not?’ And it just always kept working. … It just made sense.”

Once she leaves the news media business, Fehling will transition to a new career that’s way different from being on television every morning but runs in her family. She’ll shift her attention from the news desk to becoming a trainer like her mom, uncle, and grandmother before her.

Dan Abrams: Someone in Donald Trump’s Inner Circle Could See Charges

“For the first time, I think there’s a real possibility a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle could face criminal charges related to Jan. 6,” Abrams said on Thursday’s edition of “Dan Abrams Live.”

The hearings into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol remain ongoing, and following the raid on former Trump Department of Justice official Jeffrey Clark this week, anchor Dan Abrams has a bold belief. 

Abrams, the founder of Mediaite and anchor on NewsNation, considers that for the first time, someone from former President Donald Trump’s inner circle could see criminal charges.

“For the first time, I think there’s a real possibility a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle could face criminal charges related to Jan. 6,” Abrams said on Thursday’s edition of “Dan Abrams Live.”

“It’s generally seemed to me that the criminal inquiry into Trump and his inner circle in connection with Jan. 6 wasn’t going anywhere. I’m talking about what I actually think is happening, that’s all.”

Abrams stated the latest hearing and the Wednesday raid on Clark are what altered his view on whether anyone could end up seeing charges.

“What we learned today changed my analysis. That’s because federal investigators just raided the home of former trump department of justice lawyer Jeffrey Clark,” Abrams added. 

“He was the guy heading the justice department’s environmental division who Donald Trump tried to put in as acting attorney general could see was apparently the only one within the DOJ willing to support the effort to overturn the 2020 election.”

Finally, Abrams conveyed that the raid’s timing before the hearing could examine Clark’s role could lead to something significant when facing jail time.  

“To get authorization to raid his home now, the day before the Jan. 6 committee held a hearing examining Jeffrey Clark’s role in trying to overturn the election, suggest to me that they believe they suddenly could have something big,” Abrams concluded.

In a decision many already knew was coming following the leaked draft, the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 ruling, overturned Roe v. Wade, which is the landmark enactment that established the constitutional right to abortion.

Since 1973, women have been permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy in the United States; however, now the decision on this matter will return to the states, with a good portion expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion.

There was no shortage of news media reaction when the official ruling came down, some celebrating it while others shared concern for what’s to come a post-Roe v. Wade United States.
