WDAM Viewpoint- Potential Dish Network disruption

I would like to take a moment to address our viewers who watch us through the Dish Network system.  On August 1st, there is a chance our signal will be removed from the Dish Network...due to a lack of an agreement between Raycom Media, who owns WDAM, and Dish Network corporate.  

First of all, I'd like to apologize to these viewers for the inconvenience they may face of not being able to watch us.  I'd also like to say thank you for your loyalty.  I've talked and emailed with many of you in the last few days...and I've heard your passionate comments about possibly not being able to watch our news, newscasters and NBC and ABC network shows.

You have choices. WDAM still has agreements with other carriers and is free over the air. If you would like to call Dish Network and express your concern about possibly losing WDAM from your channel lineup, you can call them at 1-800-823-4929. 

You're paying to receive WDAM signal, ask them for a credit or rebate.  If you would like to respond, please go to the "viewpoint" or "WDAM dish retransmission" sections on our website…or send a letter to the station at  WDAM- PO BOX 16269 HATTIESBURG, MS 39404

    "He had skills that not everybody possesses," said former Wayne County head baseball coach Michael Gavin. "And the biggest thing was his work ethic. I never had a kid that would work as hard as he do." Gavin saw the potential in Dylan Snypes back when he donned a War Eagle uniform.
