Capitol Broadcasting Company today announced the launch of a web-based Opinion section to express the company's editorial positions and provide other opinion-related content.

Capitol Broadcasting hired veteran North Carolina journalist Seth Effron as editor of the new section, which will be available to the public as a separate tab on the WRAL.com website.

"We want to be part of the North Carolina conversation," says Capitol Broadcasting Company President/CEO Jim Goodmon. "We will offer ideas and solutions designed to make North Carolina a better place to live, work and do business."

The new opinion section includes editorials, commentary from select third-party writers, a state-wide editorial round-up, video interviews and occasional cartoons.

Effron has spent more than four decades in journalism, academia and public service. He will write editorials and produce the opinion page as part of CBC's Corporate Special Projects Department, headed by John Harris.
