UNC President Tom Ross

MOLLY: Beginning next month, Aaron will be working as a news writer here at 1360 WCHL. Which means he can no longer appear on DSI Witness News as an anchor OR play the voice of a real-life person, like Sammy Slade, or Mark Kleinschmidt, or everybody’s favorite, Erskine Bowles, the Flying Fist of Justice.

AARON: Sad but true.

MOLLY: In a completely unrelated story, yesterday, the UNC Board of Governors elected Davidson College President Tom Ross to replace Erskine Bowles as UNC system president.

AARON: And so, joining us in the studio today, is our newly elected UNC president, and all-new DSI Witness News character, the honorable Tom Ross.

Tattoo Taylor

For those of you who’ve been following us this week, we were not first in line this morning at the new Krispy Kreme. And speaking of things we’re not getting for free, the owner of Open Eye Cafe in Carrboro has announced that he will no longer be giving free coffee to customers who get the Open Eye logo tattooed on their bodies. However, we have found one man who says you CAN get free swag from OTHER businesses in the area with just a few select tattoos. Joining us today in the studio, Carrboro hipster, August Taylor.
