The most fertile soil does not necessarily produce the most abundant harvest. It is the use we make of our faculties which renders them valuable. -Thomas W. Higginson
One of the driving purposes at our station, WHSV-TV3, is to be a Good Neighbor. We work hard to be valuable participants of the community, to contribute to the growth of our area and to help keep our friends and neighbors safe and informed.
As a part of this mission, our team is constantly learning, evolving and trying new things in order to best serve the people and businesses we care so much about. Just recently, we got together as a group to take a good look at how communication has evolved, especially in our industry. In broadcast, we no longer just deliver the news to people, we rely on our audience to essentially be our eyes and ears and to help guide us. Our job is to open the lines of communication for everyone to join the conversation.
If you live anywhere on the East Coast, or, if you have turned on the news at some point in the last two days, you probably know that we’ve got some snow right now. For me, this snow has been like no other.
I have seen our team at WHSV step up and take their reporting and interactions to another level. I looked out my window this morning and saw my neighbor snow-blowing my driveway, along with many others. Hundreds of people have sent their “Snow-Day” pictures to our TV3Social Facebook page and dozens have helped us measure the snow where they are at.
So today’s post is really about being grateful and recognizing the Good Neighbors that surround us everywhere. People are amazing and in tough times, if you’re really looking, they come from all angles. Today, try to focus on the remarkable–and when you find it–make sure you let the world know!
Please, share your #GoodNeighbor stories with me!
