Thank you for making 2017 a great year at NBC12, RVA!

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Season's greetings and warmest wishes from our NBC12 family to yours!

As we reach the end of a great year and move into 2018, we want to thank our viewers for making NBC12 the most watched station for news in 2017 and for the past 30 years. You, our viewers, are the reason that this has been such a great year at NBC12.

Let's review the year:

· #1 in News, AM to PM for 2017 year to date (A25-54 ratings Nielsen, ComScore and Sorenson HHs)

· #1 Facebook likes, #1 Instagram followers, and #1 Twitter followers for any Richmond television station

· Awarded the prestigious National Edward R. Murrow Award for "Overall Excellence" (small market category)

· The First and only station available on Roku and Amazon Fire in the Richmond market

· The First and only station to launch a skill on Alexa

You are the reason that we have continued our commitment to being On Your Side and delivering the stories you care about on the platform of your choice.

In 2017, we worked daily to fulfill our commitment to being On Your Side in this community. We helped a local multi-millionaire give a hand up to multiple families in need with our Secret Samaritan project. Each week we helped you recognize someone who has made a difference through Acts of Kindness.

Our team of On Your Side investigators called out corruption, broke the stories that impacted your lives, and fought for you when you needed us.

In addition to that, this year we walked beside you in the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure, fought childhood cancer with our Anthem LemonAid stand, and worked with you to bring the joy of Christmas to children through the Salvation Army NBC12 Angel Tree.

2018 is going to be an exciting year here at NBC12. Two of the biggest events of the year, the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics will be broadcast on our station. This is the first time a network has had both events in the same year and we cannot wait to share them with you.

We care about you and are looking forward to bringing you the news next year on all the platforms you care about. We will be there for you First on TV, online, on your phone, and on all your other devices.

NBC12, First and always On Your Side.
