Woopes .

The Firetower extension is decades away.

US Cellular is bringing 4G LTE in March.

For a second, I was really starting to get worried.

AT&T has already launched 4G here. I noticed it on their map recently.

Verizon is also launching soon.

I would love for something like The Water Gardens in Ft. Worth and a mix of Center City Park in Greensboro to be built in Downtown Greenville. I think it would be perfect and could attract better businesses (preferably non-chain) and a hotel as long as the park is marketed correctly.

Fort Worth Water Gardens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

anyone know when WITN or WNCT will make the change over to HD? Channel 12 did it awhile back & I've been watching them more often because of that. I would have thought that of all the stations around, Channel 12 would have the least amount of money, but apparently not. I wish WITN would move their Greenville location downtown...like the ABC affiliate in Raleigh. I know they apparently bought that lot beside their current studio on Arlington, but that spot isn't any better than where they are at now...it would be a little less ghetto though if they had their own building.

From what I hear, WITN is working on HD.
I would not look for it anytime soon on WNCT. Corporate is squeezing them dry and they're doing good just to pass network HD these days.

The lot that WITN bought will be where their entire operations are located when built. They will be moving everything from Chocowinity. Unfortunately the economy and decrease in ad dollars put the kibosh on that for now.

well, that's some good info. I was wondering if WITN would just combine both their locations into one. The Greenville studio seems to be where they need to be. Guess maybe before I die I'll see a HD WITN broadcast.

The city is planting trees on 5th St, that fell down during the hurricane. It will look nice in 25 years.

WITN will always have a presence in the Chocowinity/Washington area. Since their license is drawn in Washington they have to maintain offices there. Their very expensive, but outdated, weather radar is in Chocowinity too, so that will remain there when they do build the new studios in Greenville.
