What others say about MetroNews
Timberline Four Seasons Resort,
Of particular interest was a sales analysis of the period that we used your network. …The report indicates that while all other districts in the zone were in decline, the sales rate in West Virginia was on the increase. It had to be the advertising and MetroNews carried a larger percentage of the media weight during that period.
The Arnold Agency,
MetroNews is a strong product that obviously has reached the audience we were trying to reach. And not only has it reached them, it has spurred them to action.
President, United Bank,
Our relationship with MetroNews has been a success for United. It increased the reach and frequency of our message, which positively impacted our branding efforts.We are more than pleased with your creative staff and the quality of their work. …You delivered on everything promised and made sure our program was a success and added tremendous value which turned a contractual relationship into a true partnership.
We have attempted to use print media, we’ve attempted to use cable television, and on a per capita basis that’s just not been as effective as working with MetroNews.

You brought to our website over 150,000 visitors!
Durbin and Greenbrier Railroad,
The Polar Express is SOLD OUT. We sold 5700 seats. Thank you!

Field Communications Manager, Allegheny Energy,
We are completely satisfied with our relationship and the effectiveness of MetroNews. …I appreciate your flexibility and look forward to continuing to work together.
Thanks… with our ad on wvmetronews.com we were able to take in 20 students. A good size!
Whenever we try to look at canvassing our entire footprint, MetroNews is the first media outlet that comes to mind. …A lot of times when we do creative things, we send it to Metro. …They’ll turn it around for us and it sounds a lot better, most of the time, than what we pay the agencies to do.
WV Hospital Association,
We have a variety of issues that we try to communicate to key policy makers … on any given day during the session a legislator will come up and say, ‘Hey, I heard your spot on MetroNews during Hoppy’s show. …I think that’s exactly what you need to be communicating.
We’ve seen results from the legislative session by being successful in getting bills passed. That’s the bottom line, we’ve seen results from advertising with MetroNews.
