Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Sep 18, 2007




Flint Journal:

WNEM (Channel 5) plans to open a studio downtown in the building being built as a local headquarters for Wade Trim. "A year from now, we will have an operating TV studio in downtown Flint," said Al Blinke, vice president and general manager of WNEM, a CBS affiliate based in Saginaw. The move was expected to be announced at a news conference today in downtown Flint. Blinke said people on the sidewalk outside will be able to look into the Flint studio and see TV reporters broadcasting the evening news. The station has signed a 10-year lease for a ground-floor space of 2,500 square feet, fronting S. Saginaw Street. "I saw what was going on down there, and I decided that we as a TV station wanted to be a tenant," Blinke said. The station now has two reporters and two sales people working from its office in the Gateway Centre in Mundy Township, Blinke said. Channel 5 might add to that staff at the new location, he said...
