I have a number of 'nuggets' to share from the News Assignment Desk!
Final tallies (for now) are in for our weekend 'Heroes Help Northeast Ohio' drive. And Northeast Ohio, you came through yet again!
At last count, nearly sixty-seven pounds of food, twenty-five hundred dollars, eight bins of toys and sixteen bins of coats were collected Saturday at various Wal Marts around town. wkyc, the Cleveland Foodbank, Akron Foodbank, The Salvation Army and Coats for Kids all thank you for your unprecedented generosity.
Today is the first day of November sweeps! Keep tabs on wkyc.com, wkyc's facebook page, wkyc's Twitter page, YouTube and our daily broadcasts for promos & teases for upcoming stories the entire wkyc staff is working on for the next month. You can be sure these stories will help, inform, intrigue, and entertain the viewer watching. The ratings period ends on November 24, 2010.
Part of the Channel 3 newsroom is getting a face lift. After we switched over to a new computer and editing system, which allows everyone to work from their work stations rather than having to work in an editing bay, a more efficient work space flow was devised.
The Metromix area, Momslikeme area, editing bays, and photographers work room are being reconfigured and some of the walls are gonna come tumbling down!
And the newsroom is busy gearing up for what looks to be a very active and exciting election day on November 2, 2010. Make sure you get out and vote!
Everyone, please have a very safe yet spooky Halloween weekend!
