Consider This: Web-Cast Update

Three months ago, we launched a unique, new way for viewers to watch local sports, entertainment and more, the WECT Web-Cast on

We've archived area high school football games, political candidate forums and the ceremony naming Jurgensen-Gabriel Field at Legion Stadium. You can watch them by going to, scrolling down to the Web-Cast link and selecting the event you'd like to view. That's all there is to it.

We're proud to be the first in southeastern North Carolina to make local events available via web-cast to everyone, no matter where they live, free of charge.

On November 16, we brought you another first, we live-streamed the Catonsville Tigers vs. the Cape Fear Community College Sea Devils basketball game as it was being played at the Schwartz Center.

We're going to live-stream several Sea Devils' games this season, like the one next Monday against Clinton Junior College; we'll archive the games as well so you have the choice of watching them live or after the game is over.

CFCC TV and Film Production students are handling the production duties for those games.

Last Saturday night, we recorded the North Carolina Holiday Flotilla at Wrightsville Beach, and that event is also available on the web-cast player.

On December 9, WECT will broadcast the City of Wilmington Holiday Parade live, and then we'll load it into the web-cast player so all the participants and their families and friends can watch it afterwards, no matter where they live.

We have a lot more plans for the WECT Web-Cast, 4th of July fireworks, parades, independent films and other sports events to name just a few.

So check out the WECT Web-Cast on often. You never know what you'll find.

That's what we think. Tell us what you think. (kd)
