BREAKING NEWS: WKTV has reached a long-term retransmission consent agreement with Time Warner Cable. According to Smith Media management, local cable systems will restore WKTV’s signal shortly.
We hope that Vic Vetters and Smith Media took note of the lackluster support for WKTV during the Time Warner Cable blackout. Comments posted online referenced the lack of both professionalism and real journalism. We deserve a news outlet that we can be proud of; talented professional reporters and anchors who can gather and deliver a news package, not just “read the Observer Dispatch”. We are also not interested in hearing your banal ad-libbing. Those comments often make you seem arrogant. So WKTV management, please file this under LESSONS LEARNED and become the news leader we need.
