  When your reporters broadcast from Worcester, especially in the winter, you always mention Worcester’s “Seven Hills.”  Can you name them? – Diana, Worcester

According to the city’s website the 7 hills are:  Hancock, Bancroft, Newton, Green, Chandler, Union (or Sagatabscot), St. James (or College.)

However there are more than 7 hills in Worcester and, at least on the web, there seems to be some disagreement about which are the true 7 hills with some people listing Airport Hill, Vernon Hill, Grafton Hill and more.

I’m going with the city’s website.  How about you?

    The only time WBZ mentions Worcester or anything beyond Boston and the cape is when they are the epicenter of a natural disaster! It is like we don’t exists most of the time. You can listen to the weather forecast for the Boston area and take a wild guess at what the weather is going to be like in the Worcester area and more than half the time they don’t even come close. You have a better chance with the Rhode Island stations of getting an accurate forecast for our area. It is really pathetic that a city the size of Worcester doesn’t have a decent local station that runs full time and not the infomercial laced programing it has.
