On this week’s episode of Tying It Together, host Tim Boyum talks with congressional representative Kathy Manning.
The first Jewish person from North Carolina elected to Congress shares horrifying details of the videos she and other members viewed of Hamas’s attack on Israel and her meetings with relatives of hostages. She also details her own experiences with antisemitism and her work as co-chair of the bipartisan task force to combat antisemitism.
Later, the two discuss state lawmakers drawing her out of her own congressional district and what she plans to do next.


With the speed of the local news cycle, it's easy to forget that the politicians who represent us and the influencers in our communities are more than just a sound bite. North Carolina’s veteran reporter and anchor, Tim Boyum, loosens his signature bow tie to give listeners a glimpse behind the curtain, showing us who these power players really are and why they do what they do. Through Tim’s candid conversations on “Tying It Together,” his guests reveal their most fascinating life stories, passions, and help all of us get a better grasp on the issues affecting our communities.
