What’s old and what’s new brings WHHI Television to new heights

Cutting through the noise of content available to viewers these days can be a difficult task. However, WHHI seems to have found a way to do it here in the Lowcountry. It turns out that a shared vision alongside some plain old sweat equity is working for them. The requests of Lowcountry viewers are simple: to have a television station that we can count on for news, weather, sports and information in our neighborhoods, not Savannah’s. Between an increased coverage area of 500,000 people, a new newscast focused on the South Carolina side of the market and a shared vision of people eagerly working towards the mission, WHHI Television is on a solid upward trajectory. The growth is fueled by the staff’s changing agility, but also by holding true to the mission of providing Lowcountry content. It’s an interesting mix of new and the same. In similar fashion the team that makes it all possible is different and alike. They have different ideas, different styles, different focuses and likely more. However, the combination of their varied strengths alongside the synergy that comes from their likeness in vision, is what resonates with viewers. To wrap it up into one single sentence let’s just say, if you haven’t watched WHHI Television in a while, it may just be time to tune in.
