WKYC News & Notes: 3/8/16

By Frank Macek

It's time for another "behind the scenes" look at what's happening inside the WKYC Digital Broadcast Center celebrating our 15th year at 13th and Lakeside.

Just a couple of notes to add to the mix for this month of March as we get ready for Spring in Northeast Ohio.

The February book is now a distance memory and once again Channel 3 News is the number one newscast at 11 pm in households, Adults 24-54, and several other key demographics. Channel 3 News at 6 & 7 pm ranked in 2nd place in the demos, as well as the Channel 3 News Today from 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m.

Channel 3 has new room mates starting this week after Fox Sportstime Ohio moved to their news studios in early February located at the Huntington Building on Public Square.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission Team
We welcome the Greater Cleveland Film Commission team of Ivan Schwarz, Seema Jayaswal, John Luteran, Tabitha Mensch, Meghan Newman, Raan Shalom and Laura Stringer. We are sincerely hoping we get to see some movie stars stop by when they are filming in Cleveland or at least some free movie passes.

Congratulations to the following people who have either joined the Channel 3 team or been promoted since our last update.
