I was just wandering how come WOAY TV has had nothing on their station about the New River Gorge Bridge being closed down yesturday? Many of us think that is big news when both side of the bridge are closed down. I heard about it on the radio and that people that were traveling that way needed to find an alternate route. It seems that lately when WOAY reports news it is old news that has been played over and over again. If you are going to report news part of the word news is new! I can see repeating a story and having updates about a story but come on now not reporting on something as big as the New River Gorge Bridge being shut down, that is a big slip up?!

I think the news around here is a joke. WVVA 1st report the court house on fire. This station is on the same side of the road a block down and could not tell what building it was. Someone gets hit on a exit ramp on 1 of the most busy road and nobody could do a report on it on the same day. A major State Route closed for hours and again nobody could do a report on the same day when it is closed for several hours. Those should been top story. WVNS does more story from Mercer County when the same story could be done here in Raleigh County. WOAY I been stuck in traffic when a 5 car accident happens at the end of their road on 19. TV station never cover that story either.

I called about it. They don't cover suicide attempts. I guess that just encourages crazy people to block the bridge cause then they'll get on tv

I have seen in the past where they had reported on suicides and suicide/murders. It just doesn't make sense they missed a big story about them having to close both sides of the bridge. I am sorry for whoever it was if they were attempting suicide, if that was the reason for closing off the bridge. I also hope the person is able to get the help they need.

I agree, I remember a guy locked himself in a house on Dry Hill Rd 1 time and it was on the news. The guy that killed his wife over in Shady Springs was on the news, his court hearing was on the news. The lady that her son and grandson that slashed her and was going to toss her over the bridge was on the news. Major roadway closed and nothing. Someone hit by a truck on a exit ramp nothing. I think they were to lazy to do the story. For WOAY I seen a 4 car accident on 19 right at the exit for the tv station and road was closed for a hour and they did not even report it.

Trust me. The news media can only televise certain situations. If u happen to be interviewed by one of the newscasters and a particular person doesn't approve, u might as well forget the truth about fayette county!!!!! Like I said one person runs the entire county which is a shame.

This particular man has disappointed many fayette county residents. Somehow he has the power to run the whole show in fayetteville county. Needs to go back to announcing. That's what he does best!!!! Quite a shame people would allow him to intimidate them!!!!

The News covers the agenda they see fit for American's they don't believe we can handle the truth- they are wrong, and we know, and we are sick of the lies, and of the cover up's, sooooo when America has had enough of this (and we have) other way's of news and truth will come to us- for we seek the truth.

They are the only station that signs off the air at night. That limits advertising and making the moo la. they are in effect a part time broadcaster.Bet 59 news wishes they had Martin Staunton back. They now have a bunch of novices. I watch bluefield ch 6 as of late.
