I wish I could tell you more... but unfortunately I can't due to personal information; however, that's the name of the news broadcast. This news station is on our side, and it talked about how terrible it would be for it to close and for everybody to lose their friends. And there's a link to savevmk.com on their website.

Just thought you all should know we all HAVE made a TV news station (And it was on the radio too, my best friend was riding home in her car and heard it!), and we ARE getting somewhere!
Don't give up!!
I'd be willing to bet the people at Disney saw it ;D

WOOT! (Lol had to add that)

Congrats to all (Including my dad!) who helped make this happen :]

Just a thought, but maybe these links can get sent to the Disney Internet Group or VMK so they can see that they made the news. I mean if I made the news today I know I sure would like to know ;)

All the heartache, tears and hard work will hopefully make a difference soon! I just can't imagine how anybody could ignore so many of the letters and comments.

That is awesome Bugdozer!! Way to go. Hopefully someone can get a hold of the video. I meant to watch the news at 11 p.m to see if they reran the story, but remembered 5 minutes before it was over

This is FANTASTIC!! Great work everyone! Our teamwork is getting the message of our unhappiness out! Walt would be proud of each and everyone of us for keeping up the fight for the magic:wizard: WOOT! This is great news! I can only hope that this is the first of many more news sections to come. Disney will see how much this game means to us all :banana:
Does anyone have a link to the news clip? On youtube maybe?

Wow you guys. I got chills from that picture. This is really what gives me hope. Disney expected us to just sit back and cry a little when they told us that VMK would be closing, but I bet they never expected us to make the news!! Yay yay yay!


Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.

Just wanted to point out this little tidbit at the bottom of the article too :thumbsup2

Bug, Thanks for sending your story in. It's the type of human interest piece that most local broadcasts love. It shows the heart that this so-called "promotion" has created.

The video can actually be seen through the channel 6 news website, yesterday I couldn't see or find the video at all. I have also posted the video on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCZsOmRAk94), but if moderators feel it should be removed please do so since you can search on Channel 6 News also. You can also search on youtube for the video...Please note, I have requested to approve comments and approve video comments before allowing them to be posted, I want to make sure it stays child friendly regarding comments. I have also posted the channel 6 news webpage in the description, and also a link to savevmk....

P.S. I will forgive the lady reporter for mentioning at the end that lights out is September 30th :)

Yeah, They did I wanted to make sure that both the station and savevmk gets some recognition here also, so please feel free anybody to visit both of those sites also. In addition, There is a really good article on channel 6 news so to give them recognition make sure you visit their site to bring their amount of hits up...Thanks!

Maybe if we send them a polite note saying that the piece is great, but they got the closing date wrong by a LONG shot (they say 9/30), they will post a correction on their site - creating additional press.

ETA - This has already been done. I am writing this so that no one else does so. They did a great piece, they are aware of the correction, great work all.

Woot, this is so cool. It would be great if they did at least make the closing date Sept 30. That would give us more time to fight this...

I just sent them a thank you letter for airing the story. I didn't mention anything about the closing date though. I just wanted to let them know how much it means to all of us that they covered the story and what a great job they did with the piece. :goodvibes

04-15-2008, 01:37 PM
I went to contact us on their site and already wrote out my message. But where it says which recipient to send to, I have no idea what to put. LOL, could someone tell me which one to select? (:

TinkRBel_In_Training
04-15-2008, 01:43 PM
I wasn't sure either, but I chose the News Director one. I think either that or the News Manager would be ok because I assume they both deal with the running/airing of the news stories. :)

I just watched the News clip and it brought a tear to my eye, a happy tear that we finally got on the news.

And I agree with aengus, Local 6 has done a wonderful job with the Story. And when they said the closing date I had a huge question mark over my head. I agree with sending them a polite letter with the info on the closing date. :)

I agree! Well done Local6 for bringing the "real" factor to this virtual story! I think so many non VMK'ers don't get it until they read and see the impact this "little promotional game" has had on so many lives. The more we get these stories out there, the better.

Thanks for keeping us informed too!

Not me, Credit really goes to everybody involved with saving vmk and also for Local 6 News for running this program. I did the easy part by creating another video with sound, just in case for some reason it was pulled from the local 6 news video area. ;)
