    Laura - There are 15 counties in our television market (Greenville-New Bern-Washington) but we endeavor to serve a total of 29 counties. All of the counties that we serve are important to us. While we do have our main studio in Beaufort County, we have some of our reporters based in Pitt County because it is the largest county that we serve. CM

    Yes this is a wonderful program, but it never ceases yo amaze me that the station that originated in Beaufort County and Served Beaufort/Hyde counties for so long focuses so much on Greenville. Washington High School students spent part of their day reading to the Students at Eastern Elementary. I am glad that witn 7 has expanded to include Greenville news, but you should remember your roots. It often feels to us as if we should just be watching channel 9 now because we would get the same thing from them. You are loosing lifelong loyal viewers. Please feature more local content. Concentrate on the people you serve.
