We all need to write emails to news@wutr.tv and cc smerren@wutr.tv and tell them they need to start covering shit!

It's so annoying that I try to give WUTR a chance and watch them and look their news up on their website and half the time they don't cover the stuff that's important.

They have someone working there during the day when all the reporters are out and that person STILL doesn't update their damn website with stories.

Remember that guy who drove into the pond? Or the Christmas eve fire? WUTR didn't cover either of those. It's so embarassing that all their reporters there want to do is just cover "happy stories" and not do any investigative digging. I saw one person cover a story on "What are your thoughts on the new budget?"

DERP. Do some actual news digging girls! Don't ask us or present us with stupid ass stories like "what is your opinion on gun control?" Make a facebook post... They want to be better than WKTV yet they refuse to update their website in a day and age where social media and shit is what you're supposed to be doing!!!!

End rant.
go back

You are perfect for WKTV and the OD. Return to those outlets for your updates. I'll continue with WUTR.

So,are you saying that we should settle for mediocrity, at best? No, we deserve news and if they call themselves a news station or paper then they should deliver. Otherwise why bother?

There is a reason WUTR is owned by Deathstar Broacasting....they will blow eventually! Perry Sook and Tim Busch are two of the biggest scumbags ever!!! They will burn in hell for what they have done to good employees!

They ARE not up to date with technology. If they were they would know how to update social media throughout the day.

And none of you even answered what I wrote. If WUTR is all you watch, you would have NEVER known about the people who died in the pond and car crash the other day. Or the Christmas eve fire. It's just ridiculous. They cover stuff that's easy or they don't have to do work for it seems.

Samantha Wessing's voice is like scratches on a chalkboard! Why would anyone let her speak so much? I have to turn the channel when she speaks. Not to mention she can't speak without huffing and gulping as if she's out of breath. AND it's every single time she speaks. That's what people who are out of shape do when they speak too long. She needs to get her voice in shape so she can report without being out of breath. Can't believe her supervisors don't help her with this. Rachel has a similar voice tone, which is equally unbearable, but she doesn't gulp out of breath as she speaks.

I generally like the ABC lineup so it's beyond annoying that her voice is so unbearable. Oh well, I just turn to WKTV.
