What is your favorite local news channel?

Recommended Posts

This is so random I know, but I always was curious what most people around the triangle think. Between WRAL, NBC 17, ABC 11, and News 14 Carolina, which one do you watch the most, and what is you're favorite one and why? My rankings are: ABC 11, WRAL, News 14, NBC 17 from best to worst. So like I said this is random, but hey, I want to work some day at one of these places, so you guys can help me out. :)

I follow WRAL the most, I can't say they are better or worse then the others, local news only has so much to differentiate itself, but seem on the ball with whats going on for the most part (just don't read the comments on their news stories online... almost as bad as youtube comments.)

I don't watch local news on TV, since in the morning I am tuned to Sportscenter, but I will say this about the news websites. Even though I'm living in Winston Salem, I still regularly check the WRAL website. For several reasons, mostly for NC State and Carolina Hurricanes news that may not pop up over here, but also because WXII12 has a terrible website, and I don't think I've even been to WFMY2's site. I love WRAL's website, things are very easy to find.

When I lived in Raleigh I watched WRAL pretty much exclusively. I used to live right across the street from the studio (Wood Hall @ NCSU).

News14 Carolina I will turn on when there is bad weather, since they have pretty good weather coverage and also cover a larger area. Ours here in Winston covers all of the triad down to just north of charlotte and west towards burlington even some towards chapel hill, so if stuff is heading your way you might get more than 20 minutes notice.
