Dave Salesky takes his act on the road
Portland, OR -- In what has become an annual event, KGW Northwest NewsChannel 8 meteorologist Dave Salesky will be broadcasting live weather reports and doing live remotes from five surprise Portland-area locations the week of February 9 through 13, 2004 on NewsChannel 8 @ Sunrise from 5-7 am.
"Out & About with Dave Salesky" will feature the popular morning weatherman interacting with some incredibly colorful Northwesterners, simply going about their jobs, including becoming part of one of Portland's most popular radio morning shows for a day.
"We want to tap into what makes the Northwest one of the unique places in the world, and meet some of the people who get up early with us every day. While we can't disclose where we're going, we want each segment to be two hours of lively and interesting television," said Dave.
NewsChannel 8 @ Sunrise is anchored by Brenda Braxton and Russ Lewis and features meteorologist Dave Salesky, Bill Deiz with traffic and Colin Cowherd with sports live from the studios of KFXX-AM (The Fan).
