They need chairs to sit in like southern exposures. They need to focus more in there appearance and need to hire cute news ancors and have them wear short skirts to boost the ratings. Who wants to look at Greg Carter's azz! Go tell ya mamma!

WVVA is very pathetic at the very best-I guess that is one of the reasons I totally prefer NOT TO WATCH THEM.
I only wish there was a way to get them off our cable(Comcast) and free up the slot for something useful-would LOVE to get Huntington or Charleston channel.I can understand why the Tazwell Co folks on timewarner cable did not want them...they forced themselves on them and they are still trying to get Bristol back.
The news anchors are pathetic-Greg Carter is the worst and others are not really any better.The more they go the worse they get.
I resent PAYING for cable(or satellite) and being FORCED to take something that pathetic.
When Directv first became available I went on it and had NETWORK FEEDS all networks both east and west coast feeds I think I paid 5.00 a month.THEN WVVA goes to court and gets legal action against the satellite provider forcing them to turn off our networks.None of the other stations did this just WVVA.The same as they did with Timewarner cable FORCING them to carry WVVA-and WHY IF the people are paying for cable service and they do not want something they should have that right.
After loosing optimal satellite view I am on Comcast cable in Bluefield and(satisfied) BUT it's the same...DO NOT WANT OR LIKE WVVA but they are FORCED to air it.
I know a lot of folks that feel the very same-you would think WVVA after all the dissatisfaction vented over the time warner issue( and WVVA knew folks did not want them)they would make effort to change and improve...NO...basically they are CRAP and know we are shafted and stuck with them...oh well I will continue to do like many many others....PUSH THAT CHANNEL SELECTOR...and select anything other than WVVA.

They are so rude to people on fb. I think Eric Greene is the one responding on fb. They usually a "coming up at eleven" piece which includes local and nation news but they make it all sound local.....like as shooting that occured in another state. It is pathetic that they have such little local coverage that they usually only have five minutes of local news at six o clock.
I agree

There are alot of local stories they should be covering, but for reasons unknown to us sane people they refuse. They either choose to do the little "Feel-good" puff pieces or something straight from the National Enquirer; scandalous and degrading to the ones who don't happen to be the areas elite citizens. I haven't watched WVVA news in at least 10 years. I don't even check it for the weather reports.

WVVA is a training ground for newscasters. They all get better jobs except for Greg and Cory. No one wants them or they want to stay here. Who knows.

They do report the local news....as long as that news is from the Beckley area. "Woman arrested for shoplifting at Krogers"...."Man indicted for jaywalking". Meanwhile, a murder/arson occurred in Richlands the other night and nothing. Yeah, it is a training station for those just getting into the business, but that doesn't mean they can't cover more news from THIS area. If I wanted to know every detail about what happens in Beckley/Raleigh County no matter how trivial or "newsworthy", I would watch WOAY. Now, I basically just don't watch the "local" 6:00 news because there is no such thing.

So true. Once they was covering Lebanon for va elections and my mom told me they had a nasty car accident just a mile away at the same time. I believe people died. I know Lebanon is not covered but you would think they would rush to something like that.

WOAY covers Raleigh County but they also have more news from the Bluefield/Princeton area than WVVA.

What you people expect? Look at the caliber of personnel they have working there! Cory/Greg/Janna/Eric are awesome. They need to clean house starting with the rude office people. Don't be so quick to judge who you think is giving the smartassed answers on FB.

That old bag in Charleston (Barbara Hawkins) gets on my last damn nerve. She's worse than the rookies they hire.

The only good department there is the sports, Jamie and Brad are really good reporters and you can tell they take it seriously. The rest of them are to lazy to move let alone doing the news.

WVNS or WOAY are far far better with news from Bluefield. Their "anchors" are much much better as well.
WVVA is very pathetic at best...

They are rude when you see them out. Act as if they're better. I know what they make. No reason to hold their noses up

Not all of them are rude. Just the ones that have the "I must be a movie star because I work at a fart-in-hollow T.V. station" mentality. The majority of people that live here know they barely make more than the uneducated at McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken.
