‘I like working sometimes more than I like being a mom’: WBTV’s Molly Grantham on parenthood and being a new author.


Who: Molly Grantham, WBTV’s Emmy-award winning anchor and reporter, is now a self-published author with the release of her first book, “Small Victories: The Off-Camera Life of an On-Camera Mom”. Grantham has spent the last 14 years covering some of the most hard-hitting and heart-wrenching stories in the Queen City. She has two children, Parker and Hutch. Please visit her website for more information on how to purchase her book.

What: Sallie Funderburk and I discuss with Grantham how simple Facebook posts turned into an entire book, parents feeling nervous to admit they miss work after having a child, the hardships of being a working parent, when she realized Charlotte became home, and the impact this city has had on her career.
