My Turn, Your Turn: The Big Switch

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - For the last several months we've been working hard to get the word out.  Many of you have said enough already!

So please excuse me if we sounded like a broken record.  But I think it's been worth it.  And I know my friend Gwen Murphy thinks it was worth it  too. Gwen is one of the receptionists here at WECT.

Now had we downplayed the switch-off of analog she probably would have every reason to just up and quit on us on Monday.

You see - it's her job to answer all the calls.  And most likely she would be under such an avalanche of "snowy picture" calls, it wouldn't be possible to handle them all.

But we are very hopeful Gwen's Monday will go smoothly.  Because by now you should know that if you don't have cable or satellite - and you have an older TV, you need a convertor box.  You do know that - right?  I'm not asking just for myself - but for Gwen as well.

Monday is the big day.  The future is upon us.  Let's embrace digital TV together.

That's my turn.  Now it's your turn.  To comment on this segment or anything else, email me, here.
