Praise for FRONT ROW

"Marc Rotterman calls balls and strikes on FRONT ROW and he makes it a point to ensure all views are heard and respected."

- Democratic Strategist Morgan Jackson

"FRONT ROW with Marc Rotterman provides thoughtful, intelligent debate on issues of concern to North Carolina and the nation."

- NC House Speaker Tim Moore

"Marc's extensive knowledge of politics makes for a solid discussion. He's insightful and respectful... something often lacking in today's media."

- Veteran Broadcaster David Crabtree

“FRONT ROW with Marc Rotterman offers North Carolinians a chance to watch spirited, weekly debate on topics that matter. The collegial atmosphere and the ability to have civil disagreements is sorely missing from politics today.”

- NC House Democratic Leader Robert Reives II
