Portland Station Drops Sports from Late Newscast

Yesterday, FTVLive told you that WIVB in Buffalo was pulling the plug on sports during their 6PM newscast.

Now we hear that KGW in Portland, Oregon is doing the same thing in their 11PM newscast. 

Despite the Trail Blazers being one of the best teams in the NBA, and the Oregon Ducks success  on the football field and basketball court, the station is saying ba-bye to sports. 

The station says that the News Anchors will read the sports highlights if circumstances warrant. But as a stand alone segment the traditional 11 pm sports is gone from the station.

If you work in TV sports this might be a sign to start thinking about PR as a new career. 

Just saying....
