  3. LOL! I was out of the office, just got back and saw it. :D

    Nightprowler, don't feel bad... My bosses don't acknowledge the WKYC Outdoors site either, for the most part. It's a daily battle that I'm worn out fighting.

    Still doing the stories though. I have a few to post today and I'll be writing and editing a TV story for on-air and the website this weekend.

  6. It does get noticed guys. I know I've had several good, positive conversations with our webmaster and marketing VP (who both "get it") and they are very happy with the site's traffic.

    My issues come with the mid-level newsroom managers who look at WKYC Outdoors as my personal website. It is very difficult to explain how much interest there is out there, and that WKYC Outdoors is actually part of WKYC's programming, and therefore deserves some support and resources... Very rarely, they will actually use an outdoors related story in a newscast, unless I throw a tantrum or bug them to the point of submission.

    With all the interesting stories that are out there, it shouldn't be this difficult.

    OK... Done whining. I have a few stories to post!

    I just thought it would be a good idea for the small town news from all over Ohio to have a place, here on OGF.

    Carl,
    We do notice and are thankful for your efforts. I and other members have e-mailed WKYC to say jut that. Maybe it time for another e-mail blast to them

  9. Thanks Larry and everyone for the support and positive comments.

    There is a big meeting coming up at work this Friday concerning the stations websites... I even have to give a presentation on the outdoors site. I don't think they're going to be real happy with what I have to say.:)

    I could go on, but I better save it for the meeting...
