Friends and family of political journalist Mark Binker plan to gather at 3 p.m. Friday (May 12) for his memorial service.
The service is open to the public. It will take place in the Fletcher Opera Theater at downtown Raleigh’s Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts.
Binker died last month at age 43. He worked for WRAL the past five years and joined the N.C. Insider, a state government newsletter owned by The News & Observer, in March. He is survived by his wife, Marla, and sons, Max, 10, and Mason, 13.
