Joe's Viewpoint: How are we doing?

Joe Sciortino Joe Sciortino
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

I know we have shared our vision statement with you in the past, but I think it bears repeating. It reads, “Advocating for the Pine Belt and accountable to our neighbors”. This statement sets the tone for how we conduct business at WDAM and how we see ourselves. It played a role in how we arrived at the word ADVOCATE when describing what we strive to be every day. However, it is not as easy as saying it, we must live it. And who better to ask if we are living up to our promise than those we are committed to serving.

So I am asking you to let me know how we are doing. What would you like to see more of from us, and yes, what would you like to see less of? As broadcasters, we are committed to serving our local communities and want to make decisions based on feedback from our customers. If you would like to respond, please send me an email at jsciortino@wdam.com , message me on facebook at Joe Sciortino WDAM or tweet me @JoeSciortino1. I promise to respond to each message.

We regularly use feedback from our TV viewers and visitors to our website when making decisions here at WDAM.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

This is today's viewpoint.
