I put my name instead of the subject of WOWK on my earlier post about the station not staying with network coverage of the school shooting this afternoon.

Whoever handles WOWK Facebook page it is Newtown and not Newton. Eariler this week they spelled Sissonville as Sissionville.

It was so disrespectful that the station thought viewers wanted to see Katie Couric interview the Jersey Shore kids instead of the school shooting. No wonder their station has been dead last in the ratings for the past 15 years.

I agree. Every person in the entire country was glued to coverage of the shooting, and WOWK decided Katie was more important. Shame on them. #3 in the past, #3 in the present, #3 in the future.

. They like to toot their horn about their coverage of breaking news but their coverage was the worst. WSAZ was late in getting news coverage on the air, but when they did, the info they have was correct. WCHS also did a great job. But WOWK being first on the air with breaking news is nothing to brag about when your staff is in total confusion and giving wrong info. I didn't hear the reporter make the comment about 'flames from the plane crash' but some of my coworkers did and one of them got upset since her daughter was on a plane coming into Charleston that afternoon.

They are reporting that the Dempsey guy wanted for murder car jacked someone in Taplain...but it should be spelled Taplin. They really need to buy some maps with all of cities and towns in WV listed so they can spell them correctly. The suspect was killed in the Man area of Logan County but they will probably report it tonight happening at Mann in Login County.
