These are awards are not surprising. Look at the type of news that being reported. This station is not beating around the bush, they report the NEWS. Things that need to be heard/told. Leland would still be doing the dirty, corrupt things they're probably still doing, and I'm sure Chief Jayne is shaking in his boots each day waiting for the hammer to drop. I hope he's saving some money or looking for another job, because thanks to WWAY, he wont be there too long, and that's a good thing. He abused his position, and it was brought to light, thanks to good journalism.
Congrats on the awards WWAY, others may talk crap about this station, but at the same time, matters are being dealt with and situations that were done in the dark are being brought to light because of your persistance and reporting. WECT wished they'd pulled the trigger on this...problem is, they have too many friends and a reputation for "good ole boys news." Whether folks like your station or not, the truth is, you do your jobs. They may not like the news that you report, or how it's being reported, but at the same time, it's definately "News Worthy" in mine and so many others opinions, and above all.....You GET RESULTS. Your viewers get results, which is ultimately important.
Great job to all of you, and keep up the good work.
