Can't wait for Heather King in HD. Whoo hoo! It's About freaking time! Cassandra Bell is going to need to get some better wigs cause they are going to look a mess in HD. I hope the building looks legit & they put some money into it to make it look nice. I love what the ABC affiliate did in Raleigh downtown.

Now - when will WNCT step up to the plate to make it to HD...odds are it will be awhile, that has to be one of the stingiest spending stations in the world. I still remember when I was a kid & my parents would drive 'way out' by the WNCT station..it felt like it was in the sticks back then...ha.

The local WITN news, and some syndicated programming is not in HD, but the national broadcast stuff is in HD.

WITN are the guinea pigs for Grey Media (or whatever the parent company is called). Everything WITN gets/does, will be used as a cookie cutter for future stations in that family.

For more information on "Thruway Service" here:
Amtrak Thruway Motorcoach - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'd probably never use this shuttle although I use Amtrak frequently, but nevertheless it's positive news for Greenville and East Carolina as a whole. It seems like a lot more progress is being achieved under the new mayor, I'm not sure if it's just good timing or not but I applaud his efforts.
Begins October 3

Problem is they wouldn't survive downtown right now...not enough people down there, same problem as always.

I find it interesting that Calvin Mercer said in his newsletter that he found out about the bankruptcy court plans in an article. If the city council wasn't kept in the loop in this matter, who on the city-end of the deal was involved in the process? I know the council didn't need to vote on this or anything, but one would think they get to have input on such matters, especially when they're trying to plan for future projects like the intermodal center, which the council was last (known) planning on evaluating the site of the new court for the intermodal center. It's one thing for us to be guessing/wondering/wishing about things on CD, but I think anyone involved in planning the city's future ought to at least be informed about what's happening.

Sadly, you are right. That is why we desperately need more professionals working uptown. Then this would spur the addition of more upscale restaurants and retail.

IIRC, the GSA basically did everything on their own. Not much discussion with the City. Thankfully, they got a pretty decent piece of land. I would rather it be across from the fire station and Greenville utilities (Pughs block), but oh well.
