Could it be that this is the worst local station? I am so disappointed in this station. I had an issue and requested it be addressed, the first time I called I got straight thru to the general manager, who assured me he would return my call about the issue. No calls back, so I have since called on a regular basis asking for resolution or a call back. Nothing! Finally the last time I called I asked if I was ever going to even get a call back, the answer = "doubtful."

They don't have a web page? How ancient is that. Shouldn't they try to keep up? Don't they care?

They should at have a web page with information like the other stations. They have a responsibility to infom the public.

WOAY is a joke. I grew up in Oak Hill area but always watched Bluefield or Charleston news. I guess WOAY hires newscasters who are just starting out. The reporters don't know how to say certain towns in our area. I believe WOAY should train their staff about the different areas and how to say each towns name. I watch 59 news now. They know more what is going on in Oak Hill/Beckley area then WOAY. I enjoy watching Good Morning America on WOAY and I listen to WOAY news from 7:25 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. which is news that I had already heard days before on 59 news. WOAY would have more viewers if they would broadcast from 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. like other news channels.

I watch Fox 59 alot but I wish to hell they would get new people in the evenng broadcasts. I'm sick of the idiots they have now.

As for WOAY, they have sucked for years and always will. Kinda like 62 WWNR radio in Beckley. It sucks too.

did anyone see how they spelled Mercer County in the school closings? They forgot the"o" in county.

As someoen said earlier, they hire just out of school kids. They stutter and stammer through their scripts, and they can't pronounce half the towns around here. seriously they suck. During the UBB disaster, other local stations cut into programming but not WOAY. Haven't watched them since.
