Interim Superintendent Hugh Hattabaugh speaks at Tuesday's Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board meeting.

Interim Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Hugh Hattabaugh will leave early at the end of the year.

There was a shakeup in the CMS Board of Education race, where most of the incumbents lost their seats on the board. We’ll talk about what happened and why.

And, we’ll go through the results from Tuesday's election and discuss what the wins and losses for U.S. Senate, Congress, County Commission and state legislature seats mean for us here, as well as the outcome of area bond votes.

Despite a poor performance last week, the Panthers chose to put P.J. Walker back in the starting QB spot for Thursday night’s game against Atlanta. We’ll talk about how that went.

Mike Collins and our roundtable of reporters delve into those and more, on the Charlotte Talks local news roundup.
