Portland TV, a look inside the KGW newsroom

Elemental sponsored a networking event at KGW last night. That’s me. LOL My friend took that picture of me behind the desk, I’m the one with short hair. Thanks Natalie!
The studio where the anchors present the news has three robot cameras. They are operated by remote in the control room across the hall.
Here are the joy sticks that move the robot cameras.
This room is the brain. A door opens between two halves of the room. A guy waves to our tour group from the left hand room. We file in and watch two newsmen live with Joy Portella of Mercy Corps reporting from Africa. While she talks about the famine she’s witnessed, various videos go on screens and the guys pull images to help tell her story.
