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.

WWAY never ceases to amaze me with their unprofessional stabs at other media outlets. However, it does excite me to see this stab because it means WWAY realizes and indirectly admits they are in last place when it comes to ratings.

I’m hopeful the management or ownership of WWAY-TV will soon realize they have the same potential as other media outlets to build positive relationships with other outlets and area entities and could also be among the top-watched stations.

Keep it up WWAY-3 and create a post when you have an actual newscast that we can tune into 7-days a week.

Once again the low down dirty news of news channel 3. It just AGAIN shows how much more classy and better WECT is than you. Its funny how you also get their seconds George Elliot really HAHHA i like George but yeah Im pretty sure you all are getting seconds. I actually love when you talk about WECT they get more credability than you. Keep bashing them because you still are number 2. These tactics of bashing WECT will not work get a real job we already have a news station in Wilmington, its WECT!!!!!!!!!!

First things first, if you HAVE to complain about another news network’s coverage then you are probably having issues finding things to cover that are legitimate news.
Next, WWAY, you are experiencing something called “Napoleonic Syndrome”. Your news is short, lacking gusto, and irrevocably ignorant. Really? Crying about another network? Why don’t you get some sponsors, step up your sales, actually get a GOOD studio, get some decent anchors and change the people’s minds through valuable news information that is covered well and truthfully. THAT is the way you go about beating your competition. WECT has won countless awards and been the leader in news for too long to have a whiny web article change that tune. You’ve lost money, jobs, talent, and sponsors. Go and deal with that before you begin reaching outside your own realm.
Bad form WWAY… bad form. You should reprimand whatever news director, producer, or web producer that decided it would be a good idea to post this.
