Thanks for stopping by the IA board and letting us know what you think of WHO. Good to see the station is well recieved out there in the great beyond!!
I apologize on behalf of some others on here who seem to think that locally owned independent is the only way to go. Which, in reality means that they'd rather have a locally/independent owned garbage-pile with poor audio, no signal and cheesy production, rather than something that people will actually be able to bear listening to.
These same people will actually tell you that GOOD local programming (that isn't sports) can still be put togeather in places where the talent pool itself is obviously very limited, not to mention the sales dollars. You see, the reason for this is that good local programs can still be found in a handful of Americas major cities, where there is a greater talent pool to pick from, and salaries are much better. What they forget, is that they are living in Iowa, and it's a much different story out here, when the largest cities, like Des Moines and Omaha, are small towns, compared to places where decent local programming can actually be found and funded.
So, until then, we're stuck with 1 or 2 local shows followed by some great premiere/ABC/...whatever network programming. (And, some not so good.)
and remember, we really are pretty nice people here. Come visit sometime!!!
