Newswatch 12's slogan is "Watching out for you." One of the first things the General Manager told me when I started work was our station really tries to live by that slogan. We want to serve the community as best as we can, with our reporting and our actions.
We wrapped up our Coats 4 Kids drive a month ago. That drive asked people to donate coats that would then be distributed to schools in need.
Now we're teaming up with Fred Meyer (a big box store with groceries) for a Food and Toy Drive. We kicked off the drive yesterday an I was sent out to Fred Meyer in Medford to do live updates, story introductions, and live interviews for all three shows.
This video is from the 6:00 show where we aired a package and talked with an employee from ACCESS (the organization that will distribute the food). While it might not be the smoothest live shot I've ever had, I tended to get and better each show.
Hopefully, the drive is successful and we're able to meet this year's greater need.
