Earlier this year WBOC made numerous announcements trying to bring in the Eastern Shore residents together to tell them how you can make their station better.
However, NOTHING CHANGED! In fact, they're now broadcasting not only more northern Delaware news, they're now telling an incredible amount of really stupid national news as well.
They are very rarely covering local stories and quite frankly they conned their viewers into believing they care about what YOU think. Their DOOM & GLOOM story about Perdue yesterday was complete BS. Allow me to explain.
First of all, Perdue told everyone they were making this move 5 years ago. Secondly, NO ONE is losing their job. They're relocating from Salisbury to Delmar. No one needs to sell their home and believe me the Governor of Delaware wanted this facility much further north in Delaware. Perdue insisted they will only go so far as Delmar. This isn't professional journalism, it's shock value crap. They even said Salisbury will lose 200 jobs. Just where in the hell did they get that number? They certainly didn't speak to ANYONE at Perdue. They will relocate 97 employees and they hope to build that part of their business up to 140 employees in the future. WHERE DID THE 200 COME FROM?
Craig Jahelka, WBOC's General Manager needs to apologize to Perdue but more importantly the community for bold faced lies. They're not changing, they're getting a lot worse.
