Molly Grantham is a wife, mother and two-time Emmy award winning anchor and investigative reporter who has been named TV News Reporter of the Year for both Carolinas, one of Charlotte's top "40 under 40" and one of Mecklenburg County's "50 Most Influential Women". She anchors WBTV's 5:30pm and 11pm newscasts.
Since arriving in Charlotte in 2003, Molly has covered gangs, terrorism and the fight to legalize cannabis oil in North Carolina. She is also actively involved in Charlotte's cancer community and well-known for her stories on #MollysKids, local kids facing uphill medical battles. Molly features over 100 local children a year, following their battles, promoting awareness and helping raise funds for charities and research. Much of it is on her own time and through her Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WBTVMollyGrantham).
Cancer has hit her family hard. Her grandfather died of pancreatic cancer. Her mom is battling breast cancer a second time (and doing great!), her grandmother also fought breast cancer, as did her great-grandmother, who died from the disease. Her father, who she says is her forever hero, died of colon cancer in 2006.
She has always been a big supporter of Carolina Breast Friends.
Molly and her husband, Wes, have a 5-year-old daughter (Parker) and 18-month-old son (Hutch). King of the household is Fisher, their beloved mutt.
