How do I submit a story idea or news tip to WBOC.com? 

Email us at news@wboc.com or call our newsroom at 443-880-9148.  To send us postal mail, write: WBOC, 1729 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury, Md. 21801.

Where can I search for stories posted on WBOC.com?

To search for articles posted to the website, enter a search term in the Search box at the top left-hand corner of each page.

How do I locate a story that I do not see posted?

The best way to find a story you do not see posted is to search by keyword in the Search area of every page on WBOC.com. While the editorial staff of WBOC.com does everything it can to post as many stories and videos on the site as possible, not every item that appears on WBOC TV gets posted on WBOC.com. Likewise, not every item that is posted on WBOC.com necessarily appears on the WBOC TV news. For stories that you may not see on WBOC.com, you may want to search the websites of CBS News, CNN or The Associated Press.

I would like a copy of a video that aired in your TV newscasts. How would I go about obtaining one?

At this time, WBOC's station policy does not permit us to issue copies of our videos for either free or for purchase. However, many of WBOC's videos that appeared in our TV newscasts are posted on WBOC.com and can be viewed in the site's "Videos" section.
