Joe's Viewpoint: On Your Side

Joe Sciortino Joe Sciortino

Just about six months ago I shared in a viewpoint our vision statement, which reads “advocating for the Pine Belt and accountable to our neighbors." I also asked what you wanted to see more of from our station. I received many responses and many of you were very candid about what you wanted from your local broadcast station.

What I learned is that you want us to ask the tough questions of our elected officials and dig deeper into the issues. You want us to hold them accountable and share stories of what is working in our community.

I want you to know that we are working to serve in the best interest of you, our viewer, and bring more meaning to our On Your Side brand.

As broadcasters, we are committed to serving our local communities and want to make decisions based on feedback from our customers.

This is today’s viewpoint.
