While I know we should all stop and count our blessings over the past year, there is no getting around the fact that we’re ending it with quite a few challenges.
The economy and the war on terror are the big one of course, and it is our fervent wish that both will get much better in the coming year.
Mississippi will have its share of problems to confront and we will be there covering the 2009 legislature and the Governor’s office as they are dealt with.
Americans elected the first African-American to the highest office in the land in 2008. All of us should wish him wisdom and success as he leads our nation during a time of troubled waters world-wide.
On a personal note, we here at WDAM want to thank you for once again being loyal and dedicated viewers. With the change to Digital TV on February 17th there will no doubt be a certain amount of confusion. We’ll be here to help answer your questions and at the end of the day we will have a crisper more versatile picture and sound than ever before.
Best wishes and the happiest of new years to you and yours from your broadcast family at WDAM.
I’m Jim Cameron, looking forward to hearing from you as 2009 progresses.
