Why are you people obsessing over WOWK. It's always been a 3rd rate station. WSAZ and WCHS don't even regard them as competition. No one even knows or ever recognizes their anchors or reporters. It is what it is. Just leave them alone.

. I have often heard that WSAZ and WCHS has more viewers for a single 1 hour program than WOWK has in a 24 hour broadcast day. I sure they have some good employees that want to work for a successful station but there are so many viewers that don't even know WOWK exist.

I watched Don when he was an anchor at a tv station. He should be about 55 years old but I think poor lighting on their news set makes him look 80 years old. You think management would be watching (they are probably home watching WSAZ) and do something about it.

I can't watch that lady anchor at 6pm. She will not keep her hands down while giving the news. You are a news anchor not an orchestra conductor. That old man ain't that bad but I only watch their news if WSAZ has sports on and no news.

[QUOTE who="hm."]<quoted text>
which staff members slam the station? If you have suggestions, direct them to news@wowktv.com. The majority of the staff are brand new. I am there because I am from West Virginia and believe in the people I work with, otherwise I would have never signed on. Weather before breaking news is something o the past as of very recently. But thanks for watching, anyway.[/QUOTE]

Haha. What a joke- which of Bray's cronies are on here looking to get people fired? And if you are new....sign on in a few months to vent, hahaha. You should be so lucky to get fired from that building they are pretending is a news station. The new location would make for a good t.v. station someday if Bray Cary ever sold the West Virginia news empire he is running into the ground! Employees are treated like crap for low wages and the ones they do employ that do have talent are smart enough to get the hell out!
You know what we all say, "Better to be unemployed than work for WV Media." FREEDOM AT LAST! God help the rest of you with lengthy contracts and no-competes.

My problem with WOWK is you are watching the big game and your tv goes black and/or it's not actually in HD! Also, I think it should be brought to the public's attention that Bray Cary is not,'Working for You,' or anyone for that matter---
except himself and possibly the 23 year old assignments editor, who lives with him, and took the job of at least three talented newsies.
He makes threats, bullies employees into staying or leaving, and basically only keeps the four stations to get his ugly mug on the air supporting anyone he might need to kiss up to so they invest when his investors get a freaking clue!!!!!

Why should viewers contact the station if an employer says something negative about the company on Facebook ? I think these negative comments on topix are from current employees who hate the place so much. It would be hard to work for a company that is laughed at constantly.
Because Bray and his cronies Charlotte and Charlie will have the employee pay! HAHAHA. I am a former employee with a real job now where I am showed the utmost respect, but my poor friends and former co-workers that must still make a living in Charleston are stuck with non-competes, threats, and all around bad atmosphere to deal with.
I worked for years and years for this company and can tell you I am not disgruntled I sincerely hope that Bray Cary is revealed for the horrible man he really is!
And as for his minions posting on here-
well I can honestly say you will surely get yours from the man himself!

Two more defections at 13, both very experienced show producers, and both run off by Bray Cary. It's no wonder 13 is #3 by a long shot and has no hope of attracting new viewers. Talented people show up to work, only to be run off.

I used to watch the evening news but I stopped several years ago because all three stations want to constantly show the weather. I understand many viewers may not have smart phones or Internet access and the local news is their only source to get the weather, but in my opinion, one 5 min segment is all that should be aired. I want to hear news not the weather over and over.

Apparently they record the old man and the ugly girl doing the news, maybe at 5 or whatever, and just recue the tape and play it again and again. They most definitely do not change the script between 5 and 11.
And what's with the flip cams they use to record stories with?

I just watched the 6 o'clock news on wowk. To my surprise it was an informative thirty minutes. Several years ago, I stopped watching all three local news station broadcasts because they had become so obsessed with weather forecasts. Tonight weather was briefly mentioned. Wowk actually had quite a bit of stories from around the region. I agree with the post about the poor studio lighting. Other than that, the anchors and reporters did a nice job. I may start watching wowk.
