Hi my name is Kris Sproles.  I’m the Chief Videographer at WDTN.  I love black and white photos and I thought it would be fun to give you a sneak peek inside the newsroom and around the station.

What type of browser do you prefer?

September 24th, 2009 at 10:13 am by under Technology News

As you know there are many types of web browsers- Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

Which is your favorite?  I prefer Firefox and Safari. ( I am a mac guy and that is what turned me onto Safari for PC)

And by the way WDTN.com performs great on all the latest versions of these browsers.
