Here’s a bit of interesting news that I haven’t seen anybody break yet: Oregon Public Broadcasting is opening a new News Bureau here next month. I don’t know if this is for general news or if it’s for OPB Radio, TV, or what, but I got a confirmation email from OPB saying, "Final touches are now being put into place. The reporter has been hired and will begin working in early July."
I got the tip on this from the reporter himself, who emailed me about it (but didn’t want to run anything til I got official confirmation). I’ll post more details as I find them out.
