Smart move by WOWK. Rookie mistake by WSAZ. This is the problem with these large corporate broadcast groups. They have HR departments that are capable people herders but understanding an individual market in WV doesn't mean a thing to them. Let the locals make decisions about the local market especially ones that can have an influence on ratings.
