Special to the Director's Cut Blog
By Mac Mahaffee

Calling all Northeast Ohio singers, dancers, magicians, comedians and talents of all ages!

The search is underway for new acts to compete on America's Got Talent, NBC's summer smash reality show.

And for the first time ever, auditions for the hit NBC reality show will be held in Cleveland!

That's right.

On December 10, producers for the summer smash will be at the Huntington Convention Center in downtown Cleveland! It’s a great fantastic opportunity to meet the producers of the show and let them see your talent in action.

Even if you have never auditioned for anything in your life, it will be a fun way to spend the day and have some stories to tell your friends.

You can sign up in advance to audition by clicking here and then selecting Cleveland.

WKYC News & Notes: 8/5/16

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.

It's been one heck of summer for Cleveland with the Cavs winning the NBA Finals and the championship parade in downtown Cleveland, the highly successful Republican National Convention and now the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

Channel 3 News has been in the heart of it all, and all of these events have shown how "Seeing the Possible" makes a difference to our viewers.

For the next 17 days, you'll see coverage of the 2016 Summer Olympics from Rio de Janeiro from NBC and our own Sara Shookman and Will Ujek who are in Rio to bring home a local perspective to the games. Look for their reports on all editions of Channel 3 News.

We'd like to recognize several employees who have recently left the station:
  • Gary Seawall: Engineering and remote and satellite operations
  • Marlene Olbrysh: Receptionist
Also, congratulations to the following people who have joined the Channel 3 team:
  • Kierra Cotton: Audience Engagement Specialist
  • Brenna Mona: Audience Engagement Specialist
  • Cara Wilson: Account Executive
  • Bridget Kelley: Digital Sales Assistant
  • Joseph Garman: Multi-Media Marketing Producer
