- WTOL News’ new Wood County-Levis Commons bureau is a hit, according to WTOL News Director Mitch Jacob.
“We’ve had such tremendous response since we’ve opened our Wood County-Levis Commons Bureau, we signed a new long term agreement with Larry Dillin and Levis Commons,” Jacob said.
He said the 10-year contract would allow WTOL to have an exclusive storefront studio in the new entertainment complex. Jacob said the new building is currently under construction and scheduled to be completed by early January. He also said that under the agreement, News 11 has multiple camera locations throughout the entire facility.
Jacob said WTOL is installing a LIVE SkyTrack11 Levis Commons camera on top of the new building.
“This will allow us to get live pictures of the happenings of the shopping center along with traffic traveling on 475,” he said.
Veteran WTOL News 11 Reporter Dick Berry will continue to report from the bureau. WTOL’s Wood County News Bureau at Levis Commons opened this past April.
- Steve France, news director of Fox Toledo, WUPW, when asked what was happening at his TV station, responded, “Just gearing up for a busy November and the November Ratings Book.” His response was typical of most of the Toledo news directors I contacted this week, referring to the Nielsen TV Sweeps, which begin Nov. 1.
Brian Trauring at 13abc said “Every day is a ratings period and we’re always trying to do our best.” But he said during a ratings sweep the intensity is raised a few notches.
- A local group known as the Latin American Planning Development Committee has reportedly filed an application with the Federal Communications Commission to operate a non-commercial educational station on the frequency of 90.7 megahertz. The station reportedly would be licensed to Oregon and have an effective radiated power of 3,000 watts. Programming would be bi-lingual and focus primarily on Latin culture, music and news as well as other information in the Spanish language.
