Habits are hard to break. We understand that. But having bad habits mean you might be missing out.

These last two weeks are a perfect example. If you watched WECT, you wouldn’t know that…

> A Pender County teacher has been charged with cyberstalking one of her teenage students.
> A Raleigh couple claims a State Highway Patrol trooper tried to intimidate them in Wilmington after pulling over the wife for a “burned out headlight.”
> A local McDonald’s has tested its employees for TB.
> A vacationing girl was bitten by a shark at North Topsail Beach.
> And the North Carolina State Supreme Court halted a local judge’s order and is allowing the district attorney to run traffic court the way he wants to.

It’s hard to say why we’re the only TV station in town covering these important stories. Maybe we don’t mind controversial topics. Maybe WECT doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude to rock the boat. Maybe it’s a little of both.

But no matter why, the bottom line is simple: if you want IMPORTANT, INFORMATIVE, REAL LOCAL NEWS, the only place to get it is on WWAY NewsChannel 3.

Bad form WWAY. I’d love to hear your newscaster “RANT” about this one!

No need to degrade another station. This was lack of class and not even appropriate. Why? Do you really think someone is going to stop going to WECT because of it? No, I think it may push more people to go TO them because of your lack of class.

You really need to do your investigating before making accusations. You claim WECT didn’t report the story about the girl bitten by the shark. Yes they did. They had it on their website on 6/30/11 @ 4:16pm whereas you didn’t report it on your website until 6/30/11 @ 11:29pm. So who was first? Hmmm… It appears that you get your news from WECT.

Where is your report about the 5 car pileup on Military Cutoff this afternoon?
Where is your report about shots being fired at Independence Mall?

WWAY, as much as you want to report that… Read more »

Seems the Police Department in Wilmington has allowed Senator Bill Rabon to go free on charges of hit and run. He get a slap on the hand for “backing up without looking” when he left the scene of the accident. What a disgrace for Wilmington. Maybe this is why Brunswick County residents stay away from Wilmington!

He leaves the scene of an accident, admits to “having a few drinks” and driving, cannot see well, cannot see. Why in the world would he be driving! Why in the world would we want him to represent us… Read more »
