OGF Announces NEW Media Partner

Discussion in 'OGF News and Events' started by Big Daddy, May 25, 2007.

  1. FINALLY! I can let everyone know just what is going on!

    As many of you know, my "real" job is working as a TV news photographer at WKYC in Cleveland. For several years now, I've been talking with them, trying to get more outdoors-related news items on the air, including fishing reports. Well, I guess the old saying is true, to "be careful what you ask for." :D

    Over the past several weeks, I have been working on shooting outdoors stories all over the State, editing them, and with the help of our webmaster at WKYC and several others, we've developed WKYC Outdoors.

    It's a web page, connected to the station's news website, that is going to be dedicated to outdoors related news. There will be daily story updates from both local sources as well as national contributors. We'll have a photo section, weather reports (including Betsy Kling's Friday Fishing Forecast) and up to date fishing reports from OGF.

    There are several stories on the site now, but understand please, it's a work in progress. We're just getting started and trying to iron out the wrinkles, which is tough to do, because I'm still shooting news stories too!

    One of the first stories I shot was with one of our own OGF members, TIGGER. His story is on the website now and is titled "The lure of it all". It's about him and his musky lures.

    The great thing about this partnership is that all the stories will be available to everyone on the web, through the WKYC site and through OGF, plus, the stories will also have a home on-air, during the WKYC Saturday morning news.

    You can all get involved with it too. Send your fishing and outdoors photos so we can get them on the website at webmaster@wkyc.com. You may even win a prize! Look for announcements on that very soon.

    At the end of this post, I'll set up the link. And as I said, WORK IN PROGRESS! ;)

    If you have any ideas on TV stories, send them to me at cbachtel@wkyc.com and we'll see what we can do. You never know, I may just show up with a camera and make you famous.

    There you go. MUCH, MUCH more to come too.

    WKYC is the NBC affiliate in Cleveland, Ohio.

    Way to go Carl! I wondered where you've been...hadn't seen an ODNR update since 5/23/07, so this explains alot! Obviously, you've been busy!

    I just want to say thanks for all that you do to help those of us that only get out a handful of times/year. Your advise is always spot-on!!

    Regards,
    Sammonator
