WKYC News & Notes: 5/10/13
It's time for another "behind the scenes" look at what's happening inside the WKYC Digital Broadcast Center.
Many of our stories went national and several of our reporters appeared on national broadcasts with updates and web stories. WKYC also tapped the vast resources of Gannett Broadcasting and welcomed several journalists to help us cover the story from our stations in Knoxville; Buffalo; Columbia; South Carolina and Washington D.C. who brought their own perspectives on how Clevelanders reacted to this story. And while a large part of this story has played out, we'll continue to follow developments in the coming weeks and months.
As we mentioned in an earlier post, WKYC was nominated for a number of Emmy Awards this year to be presented on June 1st. In addition, two outstanding people from Channel 3 will be awarded with Golden Circle Awards. Fred Griffith will be honored for 26 years as host of the “Morning Exchange” on WEWS-TV, creating a warm and friendly start to the day while updating viewers on what had happened while they slept. In 2000, Fred moved to WKYC-TV, lending his skills to the station’s “Good Company” program before retiring in 2012.
