“Lady CLT,” they call her at the Carolina Raptor Center in Huntersville. And on Labor Day, this American bald eagle will be transported uptown – celebrity birds do not fly to their events – for her appearance on “FOX & Friends.”
Fox News’ morning show is setting up a DNC-week studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade – the show’s trio of hosts – will presumably do an early-bird Q&A with this proud local version of the USA’s National Bird.
The Raptor Center will be the venue for a Sept. 2 party for delegates from Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa. Look for Lady CLT to spread her wings then, too, the center’s Michele Miller Houck told us.
