Diane Rehm has been doing it for years and now, each Friday, Charlotte Talks will gather a panel of journalists from around our area to recap our top news stories of the week. The top story this week is, of course, the Panthers at the Superbowl. They’re putting Charlotte on the world stage.  And we’ll talk about CMS, the school board’s student assignment and superintendent moves plus the city council’s non-discrimination ordinance.  It’s our weekly news roundup.

Guests
Tom Bullock - reporter, WFAE 

Mary Newsom -associate director of the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute and author of PlanCharlotte.org.

Eric Frazier  editorial writer for The Charlotte Observer
