My Turn, Your Turn: Changes at WECT

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Not many people like change, and the changes of some of the names and faces doing news and weather on WECT have been cause for a lot of questions and concern lately.  The theories are many - - one even suggesting politics.

I know that many departures at one time is bothersome and could lead people to think crazy things are going on here.  That is simply not the case.

I need to be careful discussing these matters, but I can tell you this.  These fine people have wants, needs, dreams and goals - just like the rest of us.

Every one of them made the choice to move on.  Most were difficult decisions and all were for reasons as different as their names.

It is because of respecting their privacy I can't discuss some of the theories I'm hearing.

But please think about this - everyone you see on the air at WECT was new to you as a viewer at some point.  You learned to love them - or not.

Now some of them are moving on to other places and opportunities.  We will miss them - just as you.  And I am wishing the best for each of them.

We think over time you'll come to know and like our new journalists and meteorologists, and I'm very confident our entire team will continue working hard to earn your trust and loyalty.

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