PINE BELT (WDAM) - If you are a subscriber of Dish, you may be at risk of losing WDAM.
As you may know, our station has to reach agreements with the cable and satellite companies that bring our signal to your home. Most of the time these negotiations are handled quickly and behind the scenes with no interruption to your service. In fact, you rarely are aware of those negotiations, which in our view is how it should be. Unfortunately, to date, we have been unable to reach an agreement. Y
ou could lose our station and the news, weather, and sports that you and your family rely on. That also means you could miss The Today Show, Wheel of Fortune and America's Got Talent.
Here at WDAM we deeply value our relationship with our viewers right here in the Pine Belt. We have been here for over 60 years, serving the community, supporting local charities, highlighting the issues and politics that affect us each day.
We hope that we are able to reach a fair agreement with Dish by August 3rd that will keep WDAM on their system here in the Pine Belt, and we promise to do all that we can to make that happen.
In the meantime, we will keep you updated. And please remember you always have choices: we are free over the air and available through other providers in our community.
