    Been watching WCTV since they started I think. Back when we only got one channel, and not that well. I had to be the antenna turner since I was the youngest. I'll never forget Mama hollering...left I said!! Right there..back up just a little. Ah, the good ole days.

    #1 Website. Ironic, considering so many liberals are constantly complaining about the content of the forums and are always demanding censorship. I got some news for you libs- people are coming here and posting here daily for one simple reason- freedom of speech. For better or worse. Get used to it.

    I hope the Tallahassee Democrat is watching this. WCTV is going to win this war because they are free! No more killing trees for the news, no more pay walls for local news. The clock is ticking, TDO, get with it!

      I wonder for what. ABC is a joke. All they have in that stupid Dancing show and those Bachelor shows. I think those are the only reasons they are on the air!
