Ed Crump
Ed Crump came to ABC11 Eyewitness News in September of 1984. He is our senior reporter assigned to the Raleigh newsroom.

On his first day on the job, he was sent to cover Hurricane Diana. He spent the rest of that fall shadowing Senator Jesse Helms as he ran against Governor Jim Hunt, which is widely remembered as the most expensive and possibly dirtiest campaign in Senate history.

While attending college, Ed worked in radio and had an internship at Georgia Educational Television covering the Georgia Legislature and reporting on a nightly news show called The Lawmakers. Ed received his first full-time commercial employment at WMAZ-TV and radio, the CBS station in Macon, GA. There, he served as a reporter, weekend anchor, and producer. In 1981, he accepted a job as a reporter at WTVC-TV, an ABC affiliate in Chattanooga, TN. Ed attended the University of Georgia from 1975 to 1979, where he met his wife, Donna.

He graduated from the UGA Henry Grady School of Journalism, which awards one of the most prestigious honors in broadcasting -- the Peabody Award. He and his wife have one daughter, Kayla.

The City of Raleigh released Wednesday the five-day report detailing last week's shooting of police officer Charles Ainsworth.
While one man faces a maximum of 20 years for shooting of a North Carolina State Trooper, the girlfriend of one of the two other suspects says they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
A Kinston man shot by a deputy during a Durham standoff texted photos of his dead father to a coworker, according to Durham County warrants.
As the suspect in the shooting of a Raleigh police officer Charles Ainsworth was back in court new details in the case were unfolding thanks to police radio traffic released by RPD and information from a source close to the case.
At first the video shows what appears to be a typical high school brawl with students chasing each other, throwing punches, and diving over tables in the cafeteria.
