NC WANTED Gets More Exposure on WRAL-TV & FOX 50
FOX 50 and WRAL-TV are joining together to fight crime. CBC & FOX 50’s crime fighting initiative NC WANTED started getting more exposure in late September thanks to a partnership between the two CBC stations.
NC WANTED is now producing packages for the WRAL-TV and FOX 50 newscasts. Each week one fugitive will be profiled during the Saturday night and Sunday morning newscasts on both stations.
“Our profile of wanted fugitives within the popular newscast should allow us to reach even more people every week, and ultimately lead to more arrests,” said WRAL-TV Anchor & NC WANTED Host Gerald Owens.
In addition to these new newscast features, NC WANTED will continue to produce half-hour episodes, which will now air monthly. NC WANTED will also continue its daily web presence on its website, www.ncwanted.com, which can also be found on WRAL.com by clicking ‘News,’ then ‘Crime.’
“Capitol Broadcasting’s goal is for NC WANTED to reach more viewers, generate more tips and help catch more fugitives,” said NC WANTED Executive Producer David Creech. “WRAL News is a powerful platform to support this goal.”
“The idea behind NC WANTED is to provide the public a comprehensive look at crime in their community,” said Owens. “No one likes to talk about it, but we are all concerned about it. The more people who see our cases – the greater the chance of getting tips.”
