Local Viewpoint - Thanks - 8/12

By Ted Fortenberry - bio | email

I wanted to thank you for the warm welcome you've given all of us involved with the launch of your new TV station, WMBF News. We are excited to be up and running and providing you with five hours of local news and weather reports each weekday and to carry NBC's extensive coverage of the Summer Olympics from China.

As you may know, Raycom Media, based in Montgomery, AL, is our corporate parent. And our philosophy is that our TV stations should serve as the eyes, ears, and most importantly, the voice of the community which we serve.

As part of that commitment we are launching a segment called "Local Viewpoint." Each week we will share our views on topics that impact the Grand Strand and Pee Dee communities. Now, we know you will not always agree with our opinion, but if we can achieve our goal of bringing attention to a specific topic and creating some healthy, constructive debate, then we have accomplished our mission.

We also want your feedback. If you have something you want to share, or you want to provide us with a differing opinion from our viewpoint, you can click on the Local Viewpoint section of our website to share your opinion. We hope this forum will allow you, our viewers, an easy way to share your opinion with us, and your neighbors throughout the region.

We look forward to launching Local Viewpoint and your involvement in the process. We always welcome your feedback and comments.
